About Rosemary

Rosemary (Rosmarinus) is a perrenial herb with fragrant evergreen leaves. Even though it is a plant native to Mediterranean region, it is quite easy to grow it even in Ireland. The name derives from the Greek ros, meaning dew and marinus, which means sea = dew of the sea. The plant needs very little water, just the humidity carried in the air by the sea breeze is suficcient for the plant to thrive.

The aromatic leaves are spikes-like, grey-green coloured. It is mainly blooming in spring when tiny blue, white, pink or purple flowers show up in clusters along the stems.
