Roman Beauty Rosemary

Rosmarinus officinalis 'Roman Beauty' PP #18,192

SKU
4136
Roman Beauty is prized for its dwarf, compact habit. Its deep grayish-green foliage forms a tidy mound, but it will cascade in a container or over a low rock wall, making this plant a great addition in any Mediterranean, rock, herb or container garden. Clusters of small, blue bell-shaped flowers appear in May. Use the needle-like leaves for cooking, potpourri and cut flower arrangements. This sun lover is both heat and drought tolerant, once established.
