Rosmarinus officinalis, 3 to 4 ft., flourishes in mild and coastal areas, and likes well-drained or chalky soil and as much sunshine as possible. It bears blue flowers in early May and is very fragrant. Pinch out the tips of the shoots from time to time to keep the plants bushy.

R. o. Miss Jessup is the best variety and makes an excellent internal hedge. Plant in September or April, 1 to 6 ft. apart.
