Tuscan Blue Rosemary is a multipurpose plant. Tiny blue blooms grow along the tall stems from May through midsummer, making this beauty a lovely addition to a bed or mass planting. This plant is also right at home in an herb garden. Pick the fragrant leaves for use in savory recipes. The needle-like foliage can be used fresh or dried.
Bright blue flowers line the tall stems spring through midsummer. Harvest the needle-like leaves at any time during the growing season. Space the low maintenance plants at least 2 to 3 feet apart. The upright growth habit allows you to plant closer together than other rosemary plants.
Tuscan Blue Rosemary Care
Plant Tuscan Blue Rosemary in the spring and space plants about two to three feet from the center of one plant to the center of the neighboring plant.
