Tuscan Blue has exceptionally rich dark blue flowers that smother the branches all summer long. Historically known as a sign of friendship, loyalty, good luck and remembrance, Rosemary is a fragrant herb and this upward growing version makes a great addition to your home or garden.
This aromatic herb is a very fast growing rosemary plant, up to 4 ft tall, whose leaves have an abundance of oils that are especially fragrant and flavorful. These plants have a strong pine scent and produce masses of flavorful foliage you can use in a variety of recipes. Its flavor is strengthened by the amount of light it gets, so planting this variety in a partially shady spot will produce a milder tasting result.
Also prized for its ornamental qualities, the Tuscan Blue grows upright and erect, unlike its ground covering cousin, the Prostrate Rosemary. Try the stems in fresh summer bouquets. This herb is a Zone 8 so protect in cold winters or bring indoors and plant in a great looking pot and container and enjoy this delicious culinary herb all winter long. It likes full sun and well-drained soil.
