Prostrate creeping Rosemary 
Rosmarinus officinalis 'Prostratus'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 8a-10b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 8a, where this Rosemary plant variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

'Prostratus' is a low-growing and spreading form of Rosemary with dark green, leathery and very aromatic foliage. Pale lavender-blue flowers are produced in abundance during spring.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 18-24 inches tall and spreading 4 feet or more, Prostrate Rosemary is ideal for use in groupings or massed as a groundcover in landscape borders.  beautiful groundcover because of its height, which reaches only up to about 2 feet with a spread of 4 to 8 feet. The branches will trail over walls and make an excellent evergreen border along paths and walkways or in garden beds. Also nice as a solo or accent in large, combination container gardens. A fine evergreen addition to herb gardens where it serves as a border and in fragrance gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, blue color theme gardens, and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Cultural Preferences

Prostrate Rosemary is easy to grow in most any somewhat loose and moist to somewhat dry soil of average fertility and full to mostly sun. Plants will tolerate some shade but foliage won't be as dense. Grows well in full sun to part shade. Can be pruned regularly for shaping or use in cooking.
