Trailing Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis 'Prostratus')


Trailing Rosemary

Rosmarinus officinalis 'Prostratus'

We love to plant Trailing Rosemary as an attractive groundcover, where anyone can pick their dark and blue-green colored leaves to use them for seasoning in cooking culinary delights! It’s a pretty evergreen plant accentuated by lavender pale-blue flowers that arrive in waves from fall and into spring! Rosmarinus officinalis 'Prostratus' is more than just a great plant for an herb garden, it’s very easy to grow and can handle a variety of soil conditions, so it has a variety of landscape uses. In addition to planting them as a ground cover, we also love to plant them to trail down over a dry wall, where they can create an impressive curtain of green color with a pleasant fragrance, too!

Trailing Rosemary care is very easy, you don’t need to have a green thumb to grow one! Grow this shrub where there is plenty of full sun exposure, where it can also look amazing planted in beds and borders or in rock gardens. Rosemary is used to growing in dry conditions. Once established, it’s a drought tolerant shrub with low to moderate watering needs.
