Rosmarinus officinalis

The Rosemary belongs to Labiatae. It has been cultivated in British gardens since the early part of the sixteenth century, and is still a very popular shrub. When well grown it forms a dense bush, 5 feet high and the same through. It is a native of southern Europe, and is useful alike for its fragrant, evergreen leaves and its pale lilac flowers, the latter being borne in spring.
