Rosmarinus officinalis Rosemary

Rosemary starting to bloom.

The Rosemary on the left was started from a three inch pot about eight years ago; it is now about six feet in diameter and four feet high. It is just starting to open its buds that were formed last spring. As you can see in the next picture, when it blooms it is a totally blue hue! 

Upright Rosemary in full bloom!

This is one of our favorite Rosemary varieties because of its carefree growth, great flavor and dark blue flower. 

Rosemary leaves can be used fresh or dried. If used fresh be sure to chop them very fine or use whole stems and remove from food before serving. Add to our savory herbal marinade and chicken becomes a sensational dish. Cook the chicken in the marinade  in a pouch on the barbecue on low heat.

Or, cut 8 to 10 inch stems of Rosemary to make flavorful shish kabob spears. And it is a must to lay a sprig of Rosemary on lamb while roasting. It gives the lamb a whole new depth of flavor. Whole Rosemary stems also make a great addition to Red Stew, a stick to your ribs winter time treat.

Rosemary is one of the six plants chosen to be in our  Kitchen Herb Garden Six Pack and is often included in our Basic Culinary Herb 36 Pack Assortment.

This plant is often available in plug trays. These trays hold 128 of all the same plant.  They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by 3/4 of an inch. Check here to see if Rosemary Plug Trays are available.
