Favorite or New Plant

Topiary Rosemary
Rosemary is the new kid on the block when it comes to plants for holiday decorating. During the holiday season garden centers feature rosemary plants sheared up like mini Christmas trees or topiary spheres. They can be decorated with ribbons or even small dried peppers for that distinctive southwestern look. The plants are wonderfully fragrant when touched and make a great table centerpiece for a holiday gathering. They need lots of light, so keep them looking great by placing the plants in a bright window or leaving them outdoors as much as possible. After the holidays they can be planted outdoors in sunny, well-drained areas of the landscape. Or plant them in a large container surrounded by flowering bedding plants.
