description:
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.

cultivation:
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.

propagation:
From cuttings.

usage:
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.
