About This Plant

Sun; evergreen, with fragrant, needle-like leaves and clusters of branches held upright like skewers. Lavender-blue blooms may appear any time of year. Rosemary is a terrific perennial for the Texas climate, and can be grown as a ground cover, an evergreen hedge, or a specimen depending on the variety. The leaves are used as seasonings for chicken, stews and soup. A sprig of rosemary was long carried both in weddings and in remembrance of the dead; in ancient Greece students wore it as a garland to aid memory.

Maintenance

None required, but can be pruned or hedged back as it can grow large. Rosemary endures hot sun and poor soil once established; too much water can cause root rot.
