A versatile, easy-to-grow plant, rosemary works equally well in both the landscape and in your kitchen. Originally from the Mediterranean, this upright, evergreen shrub thrives in well-drained soil and can even tolerate some drought when mature. Grows well in containers and has a wonderful aroma. Harvest regularly for best results, cutting the tender stems (not the older, woody 1). for better flavor, use fresh in cooking, not dried. Perennial in zones 8 to 10.
