GROW IT:  Rosemary is a hardy to half-hardy perennial best grown in full sun. It's fun to train it into topiaries and other special shapes to add interest to your garden. If your winters are harsh, grow it in a large pot as it can reach 2' to 3' tall, and bring indoors.



  • A tea infused with rosemary has been noted to lift the spirits of those suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
  • Crush the needles and rinse through your hair after shampooing


  • Cut a long stem and use as a basting brush while grilling meat or vegetables
