Barbeque Rosemary
Rosemary officinalis 'Barbeque'

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

'Barbecue' is a larger growing, very sturdy Rosemary that is excellent for grilling. It's strong straight, stems are strong enough to skewer meats, veggies, and seafood! Make sure to leave the leaves on the stems for better results. Its blue flowers provide striking color in summer against the rich green fragrant foliage. Some scientists are now saying that taking a few sniffs of Rosemary leaves each day helps to improve memory. Do a search to check it out.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a large upright, bushy form 4 to 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide, Barbecue Rosemary is an ideal choice for container gardening on the back patio, or wherever your grill is located. It is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings or as a hedge in sunny landscape border and home foundation plantings. A fine evergreen addition to herb gardens where it serves as a focal point or background plant and in fragrance gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens, blue color theme gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Spacing:  2-2.5' for solid hedge; 6' or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Barbecue 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. It will tolerate dry periods, but flowers best with a moist soil. Can be pruned regularly for shaping or use in cooking.
