  • Flowers: It blooms small, pale blue flowers that are often appreciated for their ornamental beauty as well as their fragrance.
  • Growth Habit: In favorable conditions, rosemary can grow quite large and become quite woody. It's often used in landscaping as well as in kitchen gardens.

Culinary Uses:
