Rosamarinus officinalis 'Blue Lagoon'
About the Rosemary 'Family': Rosemary is a woody perennial herb from the Lamiaceae family. The foliage is fragrant, evergreen and needle like, usually being a silvery green on top and whiter underneath with a strong flavour. Fresh or dried leaves are used a lot in Mediterranean cuisine and have a slightly bitter, astringent taste with a characteristic aroma complementing many foods such as stuffing, roasted meats & vegetables and are especially good when paired with barbequed foods. Rosemary is sometimes used as an ornamental herb as it can easily be pruned into hedges or used in topiary. Rosemary flowers are most often a deep blue but can also be pink or white depending on the variety and bloom throughout spring and summer with some varieties having very long or unexpected flowering periods.
About Rosemary Blue Lagoon: An aromatic evergreen Rosemary with a semi-prostrate, trailing habit although sometimes the plant can completely disregard this and grow upright. Blue Lagoon has quite pale stems which contrast very nicely with the dark green, needle like foliage. It's covered in small blue flowers during the early summer.
Grows to a height of around 50cm and can spread to between 40-80cm.
