There are many varieties of Rosemary. Most are rugged perennials that grow from 2' to 6' feet high. The leaves are aromatic and they bear small clusters of flowers in the winter and spring. 'Collingwood Ingram' is great as a groundcover, 'Corsican Prostrate' has an arching spreading habit, 'Majorac Pink' is an erect shrub that grows to about 4' feet tall. Rosemary prefers a sunny spot with dryish soil. If you have a damp spot, try 'Bog Rosemary', (Andromeda glaucophylla). It has a similar appearance but grows well in partial shade and moist soil conditions.
