Low spreading, mat forming aromatic shrub with grey-green green leaves and deep blue flowers in May and June. Similar to 'Prostratus' but with darker blue flowers.

Thrives in very well drained, poor soils, preferably neutral to alkaline, in full sun. Dislikes excessive winter wet. Best to cut back regularly in spring to retain a bushy shape and prevent the plant becoming leggy. Can be damaged by severe winters in cold areas.

From cuttings.

Good ground cover for dry areas, banks or trailing over walls.
Traditionally rosemary is used as a culinary herb, but also makes an attractive ornamental shrub for hot, dry positions such as a Mediterranean style garden.
