A Bit More

A Mediterranean seaside native hailing from Majorca and Corsica, this evergreen low-growing shrub is a riot of purple haze intermittently from fall through spring as lavender flowers blanket its trailing branches. Arresting its development at 2 feet tall and 4-8 feet wide, this ground or bank cover is also successful in raised planters where the cascading branches spill attractively over its edges. On the shore, Rosmarinus officinalis ‘Prostratus’ thrives, retaining a healthy mounding habit and lush appearance. Inland, it may become woody and bare in its center but will endure searing sun and poor soil if rewarded with regular watering and occasional feeding. Rosmarinus is from the Latin for “dew of the sea”, a reference to its ability to survive with no additional moisture than the salt spray of its native coast. Use in Sunset zones 4-24 and H1, H2.
