Foliage season:

Nice semi-scandant growing spreading Rosemary that has pink flower buds that open to blue flowers. Continuously blooms from September to June. Excellent winter display that appeals to cool loving pollinators. Arching stems to 2′ tall and spreading to form a 3′ wide shrub in just a few years. Best on a slope or any well drained site in full sun. Water to establish then none in subsequent years. Trails densely to inhibit weeds. Match with other drought adapted evergreens- Cistus, Ceanothus, Arctostaphylos. Great for culinary use with very concentrated oils in the smaller congested leaves. Evergreen. Great bank cover that will root into the ground where stems connect. Easy to grow shrub in our climate. Moderate deer resistant.
