This vigorous, upright rosemary produces spikes of purple-blue flowers, from mid-spring to early summer, so it's ideal for adding colour and vertical interest to the sunny border or herb garden. It's for the aromatic, needle-like foliage however that this plant is most often sought after, because these can be used to add flavour to roasted vegetables and meats.

  • Garden care:
    To ensure a plentiful supply of young, succulent leaves, snip the leaves regularly.
