(aka: Salvia rosmarinus) This new selection of rosemary was a standout in the trials of Dr. Allan Armitage at UGA for incredible vigor, cold hardiness, excellent branching, and a nice upright growth habit. The small needles clothe the upright woody stems, eventually to 5-6' in height. From December through April, the top of the branches are adorned with hundreds of light blue flowers. Apart from ornamental value... anyone up for some rosemary chicken?
