Rosemary Sissinghurst Blue
Evergreen Hardy Herb
This variety is very hardy with a mass of beautiful blue flowers from mid spring to early summer and aromatic dark green leaves very free flowering.
Rosemary is perfect for a sunny herb garden, shrub or mixed border.
While winter frosts may kill off some of the shoots the plant should regenerate from the base.
