Care & Size Guidance
It is drought proof and can be trained or shaped to suit any situation given good sun and drainage. Flowers are mainly produced in spring but intermittently throughout the year. The distinctive aroma from the leaves on a hot sunny summer day can transport your mind to warmer climes in a way few other plants are capable of.
Use it as a ground cover or underplanting other Mediterranean trees (Olive trees, Laurus nobilis, etc.) the prostrate rosemary will create a soft transition for plants in terracotta pots or soften dry walls and rocky gardens.
Virtually disease free and no pruning required, incredibly drought tolerant once established.
