More about Mrs. Howard's Creeping Rosemary

Noteworthy Characteristics

'Mrs. Howard's Creeping' Rosemary is a perennial in zones 8-10 and an annual in colder climates that can be brought indoors for the winter. One of the most fragrant of the creeping rosemary, having a traditional rosemary scent. The plant produces small blue flowers in summer and at other times of year against beautiful, large, wide, medium-green leaves on thick trailing stems. It's taller stature seperates it from other trailing rosemays. It's a relatively fast grower and in the course of one summer can spread over a border edge or down the side of a pot. 

Growing Information

Rosemary is easy to grow and appreciates well-drained soils and plenty of sun. Constantly soggy or wet soils can be problematic. Water as needed until fully established during its first year and then only occasionaly as needed. This is a nice plant for xeriscapes and combines well with Rudbeckia, Echinacea, Lantana, Verbena, and some Ornamental Grasses.

Maintenance is easy as well. If desired, lightly shear for shaping after flowering in spring and apply a general timed release fertilizer at that time. As with all varieties of rosemary, Prostrate performs very well in pots and may be brought indoors during winter in zones further north.

Uses & Cooking Information

Fresh or dried, leaves are used in meat dishes and stews, with roasted potatoes, and other vegetables- in fact, it goes with almost everything from appetizers to desserts. Pairs nicely with garlic.
