Season a roast or baste a stew, Rosemary is the classic aromatic herb for slow simmering meats. The aromatic leaves resemble pine needles, chopped fine into a mince to tame the assertive flavor. Plants can grow to two feet high, becoming the centerpiece to an herb garden design. Seeds are slow to germinate, so be patient.
Plant Information
Used as a savory seasoning or gorgeous ornamental, Rosemary is a versatile herb with an irresistible aroma. Patience is important with this herb as its germination rate is naturally low, but the shimmery silver foliage and petite flowers it produces are so worth the wait. Sowing indoors is the best way to begin, followed by careful transplanting once you have seedlings. You can also grow Rosemary right in containers to keep indoors or place outside. Rosemary is scented somewhat like pine but with a lighter, sweeter flavor. It's an easy way to add some zest to a variety of meats, poultry, and vegetables, as well as many baked goods too. And it keeps its amazing fragrance when dried, so it's lovely in potpourri and sachets or tied into decorative bunches.
