About This Plant
Sun or shade; rosemary is evergreen, with periodic clusters of lavender-blue flowers. The leaves are fragrant and edible; prostrate varieties can be used as groundcover or bank cover among salvias, grasses and other watersaver plants. Rosemary endures hot sun and poor soil with little watering, once established.
Although compact, even trailing rosemary can grow 2-3 feet tall and wide. It grows swiftly, but can be clipped back occasionally to control size. Although it is normally evergreen, few trailing rosemarys survived the severe extended freeze of 2021 in central Texas; assume there will be losses if temperatures drop below 8F.
