Pick the right rosemary |Trisha Shirey |Central Texas Gardener
Pick the rosemary that’s right for your spot. Along with leaves for cooking, you can even eat the flowers. Some grow 5′ tall; others stay low and spread like a groundcover. Other small ones make great containers. Trisha explains how to grow rosemary, even in shade. Flowers come in many shades of blue or white and all nourish bees.

Growing Rosemary Herb Per the video creator:
It’s a woody perennial evergreen herb that’s commonly sold as a shrub & is a member of the mint family. This Rosemary “Tuscan Blue” was 1 of the anchor plants in my front garden in Santa Barbara – it grew to 6′ tall by 9′ wide. Now that’s 1 big herb!
I moved to Arizona a couple of months ago & just had to do a video and post on this ginormous plant before I left. It’s 1 of the largest rosemarys that I’ve ever seen so how could I not?
The forms that it comes in are upright, ground cover or trailing & a combo of the 2. The most commonly sold upright rosemarys are Tuscan Blue (which is mine), Tuscan Spires, Golden Rain (I also have this 1) & Miss Jessup. A few of the trailers include Irene, Huntington Blue & Prostratus (which is the commonly sold trailing rosemary). The crosses, which have growth habits of both upright and trailing which some refer to as “semi trailing”, are Collingwood Ingram, Ken Taylor & Boule.
Rosemary, like Aloe vera, is a plant with purpose. Its pungently scented foliage, which is like a wake up call when inhaled, has many uses. It’s beneficial both internally & externally & is frequently enjoyed in the culinary trade – professional and home chefs use it in many ways. The 2 favored for taste are “Tuscan Blue” &“Tuscan Spires”. I prefer to use the tender new growth for cooking.
