Rosemary 'Foxtail'(Salvia rosmarinus 'Foxtail') Previously Rosmarinus officinalis 'Foxtail' Herb in 9cm Pot

Rosmarinus officinalis 'Foxtail' is a low growing perennial herb with bushy branching habit (like a fox's tail!) and the typical rosemary fragrant evergreen needle-like leaves it shows the underside of the leaves more so it is more silvery and upright and therefore more showy than the Rosemary officinalis. It is native to the Mediterranean region, and as such, prefers a light, sandy soil, which will fully satisfy its meager feeding needs. Having said that, rosemary is tolerant of most soil conditions as long as they are not water-logged. True to its origins, Rosemary prefers sunny and sheltered conditions. It will stand frosts if conditions are not windy and wet as well.

Herb Usage

The leaves of the Rosemary plant are extremely aromatic, and can be finely chopped and used to flavour a variety of dishes, especially stuffing. Many cooks simply cut sprigs of rosemary and place with roasted meats, especially lamb, pork, chicken and turkey. For Centuries Rosemary has also been used medicinally with the essential oil being used to treat a variety of ailments including aches and pains, sprains and headaches. It is also used to perfume toiletries.

    I bought this a few months ago from Hooksgreen - confident that it would be top quality. It is extremely pretty, has a lovely smell and is flourishing. The usual standard for a plant from this supplier.
