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.
