Discovered by the late Madalene Hill in Arp, Texas, this rosemary was sent to the folks at the US National Arboretum, who were so taken after it survived -10 degrees F that they released it under the name 'Arp'. This grey-green, 3' or taller, clump-former has typical fine-textured foliage, a wonderful fragrance, and (thanks to my wife) makes some fine rosemary chicken. Rosmarinus 'Arp' is the best grower for us in the South through both summer and winter. Beginning in the fall and continuing through the spring, the deer-resistant clump is adorned with dark blue hummingbird feeding flowers...our 8-year-old specimen is 10' across and survived 0 degrees F...WOW!

Rosmarinus officinalis 'Renzels' PP 9,124 (Irene's Weeping Rosemary) #4518

Zone: 8a to 10b,at least

Height: 24" tall

Culture: Sun

Origin: Mediterranean Europe

Pot Size: 3.5" pot (24 fl. oz/0.7 L)

(aka: Rosmarinus 'Irene') Discovered by California's Philip Johnson, this amazing selection of rosemary, also known under the improper cultivar name of Rosmarinus 'Irene', makes a prostrate mound instead of an upright shrub. Rosemary 'Renzels' is perfect for the top of a rock wall or in a container where it can spill over the sides. In three years expect a mound to 6' wide...unless you cook a lot. The evergreen clumps of this thin-leaf rosemary are topped with small light blue-lavender flowers starting for us in mid-August (NC)...a dramatic improvement over other trailing rosemaries. While most rosemary clones aren't winter hardy for us, we've never seen any damage on our clump of Irene's rosemary planted in 2002.
