Rosmarinus officinalis
‘Taylor’s Blue’

Rosemary Rosemarinus officinalis "Taylor's Blue"

A wonderfully well-behaved Rosemary for both cooking and landscaping - what makes this variety remarkable is not just its exceptional flavor, but also its ability to be shaped into a topiary! In fact, it tied for first place in a trial to find the perfect “Christmas Tree” Rosemary. If you’re looking to add a bit of formality to your herb garden, or herbs to your formal garden - this is the plant for you! Even better, this evergreen shrub is super easy: provide good drainage and occasional water, it’ll be happy as a clam. In the ground or a large container, pruned or growing wild - any way you grow ‘Taylor’s Blue’, it’s sure to please. Grows to a manageable 2’ high and 3’ across with compact, slightly arching branches and glossy green, irresistibly aromatic leaves. Long-lasting, lovely pale lilac flowers open in Spring, bringing delicate color and tons of bees and butterflies to the garden. Great water-wise choice, too! Deer, slugs and snails show no interest!
