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.
Scented, slim deep green leaves and close-set, erect branches host a lucent showing of exquisite 2-lipped pure white blooms. Harder to find than the typical blue-flowering cultivars, ‘Lady in White’ presents a compact low growing habit that wields both beauty and brawn. Petite pearlescent blooms mesmerize the pollinators in the rockery or in a water-wise planting, while the winning foliage lends savory notes to focaccia and tomato dishes.
