when to harvest
The rosemary is an aromatic herb, thriving as a rounded, perennial evergreen. It presents slender, needle-like leaves of gray-green on sturdy, erect stems. Small clusters of flowers, varying from light blue to white, typically bloom from late spring to early summer, with potential off-season blooms. Planting rosemary is recommended in spring, post-frost. It can also adorn interiors as a houseplant, albeit with more challenges and a potentially shorter lifespan compared to its outdoor counterpart, which can thrive for a decade. Establishing rosemary takes time, maturing slowly to its full size over several years, but under optimal conditions, it can shoot up to 12 inches in a single summer.
In The Records
Rosemary is native to the dry, rocky areas of the Mediterranean, especially along the coast. The genus name Rosmarinus derives from the Latin words ros and marinus which together translate to “dew of the sea.”
