Rosminarius officinalis prostratus
Horizontal form of this indispensable herb, great for rock gardens and trailing over walls. Can reach height of 1m and spread of 2m but can be kept smaller. Fantastic bee attractor, providing food even in the cooler months. Culinary herb and many medicinal uses. This herb, especially the flower tops, contains antibacterial and antioxidant rosmarinic acid, plus several essential oils such as cineol, camphene, borneol, bornyl acetate, and α-pinene that are known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antiseptic properties. Many sources document rosemay’s effect on improving memory, slightly fewer mention its ability to attract lovers, and repel nightmares! Use woody stems as skewers on BBQ to impart flavour. Very drought tolerant. Full sun. Certified organic plant.
