The arching stems of this new rosemary look great when allowed to cascade over the edges of a pot or retaining wall, particularly in late spring and early summer, when they are studded with their larger than average violet-blue flowers. It's a good-looking plant, but it's also very practical as the foliage can be used in the kitchen, while the flowers will help sustain bees and other pollinators.
- Garden care: To ensure a plentiful supply of young, succulent leaves for culinary use, gather the leaves regularly and prune each spring.
