Rosemary, Creeping (Rosmarinus officinalis prostratus), packet of 50 seeds, organic
Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
Hardy to Zone 7 to 12
(Creeping Rosemary, Prostrate Rosemary) Woody perennial. Native to the Mediterranean. These seeds produce the creeping form of the plant, which is quite wonderful when used in landscaping and can also be used as a condiment and medicinal herb. Creeping rosemary does best in a rock garden or planted in a bed above a retaining wall, where it can droop down its glorious fronds. Creeping rosemary flowers for a more extended time period than does the upright, and the flowers are densely-packed and showy. The plant prefers full sun and dryish soils. Sow these light-dependent germinators in the spring on top of planting medium and barely cover, then tamp in securely. Keep coolish (55° to 60° F) and evenly moist until germ, which occurs sporadically in 2 to 3 weeks and ongoing. Due to naturally low germ rates on Rosemary seed we advise planting seeds densely. Use deep flats or gallon pots, rough up the surface, sprinkle in the seed generously (use all seeds), and tamp well! If the seedlings come up too closely together, don’t panic, you can individuate them later. They are precious! Work up in successively larger pots before transplanting to the landscape or garden. Space plants 2 to 4 feet apart. Grows 1 foot tall and can readily reach a width of 3 feet.
