    A low-growing, spreading form of common rosemary, this sends out upright spikes of purple-blue flowers from mid-spring to early summer, among narrow, aromatic, dark green leaves. It's useful as an edging plant for a sunny herb garden or mixed border. While winter frosts may kill off some of the shoots the plant should regenerate from the base. The young leaves are great for flavouring roasted vegetables, lamb and pork.

  • Garden care: To ensure a plentiful supply of young, succulent leaves for culinary use, gather the leaves regularly and prune each spring.
