There are two major types of rosemary: shrubs and ground covers. Rosemary is typically grown in temperate to warm climates. It is native to the Mediterranean but can be grown elsewhere as well. Several common types of rosemary include Arp, Joyce de Baggio, Creeping Rosemary, Blue Boy, Pine, Santa Barbara, Upright Rosemary, White Rosemary, and Spice Islands.
- Although native to the Mediterranean, rosemary has been cultivated for so long that natural hybrids have developed.
- There are basically two types of rosemary, those that are upright shrubs and those that grow as ground covers.
- Upright rosemary has wonderfully flavored leaves and dark blue flowers, while white rosemary, as its name suggests, blooms with a profusion of white flowers from mid-winter to late spring
“When I think of rosemary, however, I just think…rosemary.”
