Studious Greeks twined Rosemary in their hair “for remembrance” before exams; the French burned it as an incense substitute in cathedrals. And of course, there’s the taste—pungent and aromatic, a pinch delivers a punch of flavor. The rugged evergreens of this genus afford short needle-like foliage studded with tiny, orchid-shaped mostly blue blooms. Rosemary obliges heat and poor soil, triumphs over deer and diseases, only improves with age and doesn’t demand much, except for sharp draining soil.
Upright, with a tidy tight-knit character that showcases broad attractive foliage and vividly dark violet-blue flowers, ‘Herb Cottage’ originated at the Cathedral Herb Garden in Washington, D.C. This bushy culinary delight is favored for its good looks and deserves a spot in your herb garden or a container alongside a well-traveled path.
