Rosmarinus officinalis ‘Madeline Hill’
at Digging Dog

Rosmarinus

Rosemary

Studious Greeks twined Rosemary in their hair “for remembrance” before exams; the French burned it as an incense substitute in cathedrals. And of course, there’s the taste—pungent and aromatic, a pinch delivers a punch of flavor. The rugged, picturesque evergreens of this genus resemble short-needled pines studded with tiny blue orchids.

Rosemarys are never fussy, take heat and poor soil, are truly pest and deer resistant, and only improve with age. Good drainage is preferred.

Dubbed for the renown herbal enthusiast from Texas, ‘Madeline Hill’ is not only a good-looking tough cookie hardy to below 0°, but she’s a savory delight as well. Intensely fragrant, rich green needle-style leaves, which are broader than ‘Arp’s cloak her robust, pale green upright stems. Wielding a not-too-tall bushy guise, this well branched Rosemary is generously sprinkled with engaging light blue flowers. Never fussy, it takes heat and poor soil, resists pests and deer and only improves with age. Good drainage is preferred.

Blooms January–April.

Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
