Description

Prostrate Rosemary is commonly known as Creeping Rosemary and it is a low-spreading, evergreen shrub or groundcover. Its leaves are green, leathery and very aromatic. This Rosemary has pale-blue flowers from early to mid-summer. Its height reaches up to 3 feet high and 4-8 feet in its spread. Creeping Rosemary will trail over walls or edge of a raised bed to make a curtain like an effect. It is very attractive to the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds but it is deer resistant.

Environment

Prostrate Rosemary prefers full sunlight and it can easily grow in poor, well-drained soil but does not do well in excessive amounts of humidity. It is drought tolerant once established. Regular pruning is not required. It requires low to medium watering.

Landscape Uses

It can be used in large mixed containers. It is also used as rock gardening and ground covering. Rosemary leaves are used as a flavoring in foods.

Although each type of herb has its own growing requirements, most herbs are unfussy plants. They prefer full sun and prosper in good, moderately fertile soil. And most require that the soil be well-drained.

Water the plants everyday and keep the soil moist. Make sure excess water is drained out. Trim the plants in the summers to keep them in good shape. You can keep the herbs on a kitchen windowsill provided you are getting good sunlight there.

Potted herb plants are sensitive to sun and naturally grow towards the source of sunlight. They might start to lean after some time so make sure to rotate the pot in different direction.
