Soil Type: Does best in well-drained, sandy, poor to moderately fertile soils. If your soil is acidic, add some lime every couple years.

Propagation: Rosemary is very easy to propagate from cuttings. Cuttings from the tips of branches will root in a glass of water, but they develop better roots if started in sand or a clean potting medium. Seeds take a long time to germinate and often produce plants that are not like the parent.
Native to: The mediterranean region, where it grows in dry, sandy or rocky soils in a climate characterized by warm summers and mild, dry winters.
Notes for Identification:  there are so many uses for rosemary that no garden should be without this attractive and versatile mint. In the herb garden, rosemary is the backbone around which all other herbs rally. Along the path to the front door, rosemary releases its fresh, clean scent when brushed against. Rosemary can take the heat, and does well against a brick or stone wall or in a pot on a sunny patio or terracerosemary leaves add a fresh, piney scent to sachets and potpourris; to soaps, lotions and perfumes; and to clothes and linens in the drawer. Rosemary is said to deter clothes moths, and an infusion of leaves works as a topical insect repellent. Rosemary flowers are very attractive to honeybees, and a fine honey is produced. In the kitchen, rosemary is used as a seasoning for many meats and vegetables. Twigs and stems added to the coals during the last few minutes impart an interesting, aromatic flavor to grilled foods. Try sprinkling a few leaves of fresh rosemary on top of cooked lima beans. Make herb butter and herb vinegar with rosemary.
