Huntington Carpet Rosemary
Rosmarinus officinalis 'Huntington Carpet'
|Description||A beautiful carpet of deep blue flowers backed by green, needle-like foliage that forms an attractive spreading groundcover. This waterwise evergreen shrub is outstanding for cascading from retaining walls or planters and is very useful in erosion control on banks and slopes. The aromatic leaves are often used as a flavorful culinary seasoning.|
|Watering||Once established water during dry spells.|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 1 to 2 ft. tall, 8 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Ground Cover, Hillside|
|Design Ideas||This is an excellent groundcover for sunny banks or along paths. It is also a fine addition to containers, where it will spill over the edges. Plant in a Mediterranean or culinary garden in the foreground of hedges or the interior of parterres.|
|Companion Plants||Lavender (Lavandula); Bay Laurel (Laurus); Pomegranate (Punica); Olive (Olea); Meyer Lemon (Citrus)|
|Care||Thrives in loose, well-drained, neutral to slightly acidic soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. As a groundcover space plants 5 ft. apart, or closer for faster coverage. Control weeds with mulch until the plants cover the area.|
