An erect and upright form of Rosemary which is perfect in the herb garden and also for using as a hedging plant. Produces pale blue flowers on rich dark green foliage in spring and summer.

Rosemary is a highly aromatic. hardy, evergreen perennial, native to the Mediterranean. Sir Thomas More wrote of it: 'As for Rosmarine, I lett it runne all over my garden walls, not onlie because my bees love it, but because it is the herb sacred to remembrance, and, therefore, to friendship; whence a sprig of it hath a dumb language that maketh it the chosen emblem of our funeral wakes and in our buriall grounds'. Rosemary has been used in law courts to protect against gaol fever, and was widely believed to strengthen the memory, hence its being considered as a sign of fidelity.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
