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

Variegated Rosemary (Salvia rosmarinus 'Aureus)is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant variegated needle-like leaves. It is native to the Mediterranean region, and as such, prefers a light, sandy soil, which will fully satisfy its meagre 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.

Rosemary is one of the most decorative herbs and is well worth growing for its appearance alone, as it can reach heights of 2m if left for long enough.Rosmarinus officinalis 'Aureus' will produce small, pale blue flowers in late spring, creating a beautiful display. To prevent the plant going leggy always cut back by one third in the Autumn.

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.

    Rosemary..but not as I expected it!

    Posted by andy munro on 17th Oct 2016

    Before ordering the hard to find variegated rosemary, I searched a number of sites and Hooks Green Herbs were the best value. However normally you get what you pay for in this life and I expected a couple of small straggly sticks instead of the robust and healthy specimen herbs that arrived. Undoubtedly Hook green now have me 'hooked'!
