Rosemary Spreading is a perennial shrub with woody stems that bear narrow leathery leaves up to 2cm long which are similar to pine-needles with a strong pine-like aroma. They have a shiny, dark green surface and white, felt coated underside with a marked mid vein, in frequent irregular order. A group of small blue or pink lip-shaped flowers forms at its tip and it grows up to 30cm tall and spreads over 60cm in diameter. It is very hardy and drought resistant and likes well-drained soil in a sunny position. This variety is spreading so can be put in a hanging basket or on the edge of a plant box or rock wall but also grows well in a pot although avoid hot window positions in summer. Leaves or small twigs can be picked all year round but do not harvest more than 20% of the plant volume. For best results space 60cm apart. Though this variety is mostly used for its ornamental effect in the garden, Rosemary Spreading can also be used for culinary and household purposes.
