This trailing variety produces zesty, aromatic leaves on branches that arch elegantly downward. It grows about 2′ tall and is ideal for spilling over stonewalls or over the sides of raised beds. Where hardy, it makes a handsome, evergreen ground cover with small blue flowers.
Where Rosemary is not hardy (beyond Zones 7–10), plants may spend the summer outdoors, then come indoors to a sunny window in the coldest room in the house for the winter.
HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is an aromatic evergreen shrub with thin, piney-scented, gray-gray leaves. Native to the Mediterranean, it needs a spot with full sun, and must have excellent drainage and good air circulation to grow well. Water only enough to keep the plant from drying out. Feed lightly once a year in spring. In mild-winter areas, where ground doesn't freeze, Rosemary can be planted right in the ground. In cold winter areas with ground-freezing frosts, Rosemary should be grown in a pot or other container outside over the warm summer season and then brought inside during the cold weather. Do not repot often as this causes shock. Cut back your Rosemary about 1/3 before bringing it indoors to overwinter in a spot that gets at least 6 hours of direct sun. After several years, carefully repot your Rosemary into a slightly larger container. Given the above good growing conditions, Rosemary rarely has problems with insects or disease. Hardy in Zones 7-10.
