Cascading Rosemary

Availability: Out of stock

Love Rosemary herbs for crafts, floral design and cooking? Then you’ll adore the Cascading Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis 'CascadingRosemary') in your garden collection this year and every year afterward! This variety is an incredibly intensely fragrant, broad-leaved culinary Rosemary.

Featuring gorgeous grey-green foliage, unlike traditional Rosemary, this is a creeping, cascading and compact grower! Forming carpets and mats that ramble and spillover garden edges and container sides in a romantic manner. Swap out those Garden Pinks or Sedum for a flavorful herb that’s romantic, aromatic, tasty and a versatile ornamental!

Rosemary has lovely summer blossoms that are a gorgeous lavender-blue hue! Smothering the plant with incredible contrast to the soft blue-green spiny needles. These attractive flowers are not just fragrant and irresistible to bees and butterflies, but they’re edible too!

Planting and Application:

Cascading Rosemary loves drier conditions and very well-drained soil, so it’s perfect for forgetful gardeners and Rock garden conditions! Use in sunny garden beds and borders as edging, dripping over walls or rocks, or let creep through the cracks and crevices of retaining walls and over the sides of planters. Call pollinators to any part of your property with these blossoms!

An excellent landscape plant for, in rock gardens, mass planting, groundcover, and perfect in kitchen gardens and containers on your patio. Plant with other plants for a delightful filler and spiller and herb planter addition. Not just pretty, but it is also great for flavoring soups, hot and cold dishes and garnishes! You can also dry the stems for crafts or later use.

  • Creeping Cascading Growth
  • Blue-Green Highly Aromatic Foliage
  • Edible & Ornamental, Crafts & Décor

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Rosemary loves more Mediterranean environments - hot, sunny and on the drier side. Plant in a well-drained site, or container with great drainage holes. Once established, these thrive in low moisture and occasional drought. Rosemary is annual in colder zones or can be brought indoors for the winter. It’s a perennial in warmer climates, and in fact, it can grow large with age!

  • Full Sun
  • Sharply-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Low to Moderate Moisture Once Established
  • Prune Back in Early Spring if Needed
  • Woody Perennial in Zones 8-11

Full of flavor, rich in color, and pleasing to the senses, Cascading Rosemary is a gorgeous form of a favorite garden herb! Order this and other unique herb plants for your garden or porch containers today from!
