Trailing Rosemary, a cultivar of the common rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), is a fragrant, evergreen herb known for its sprawling growth habit and culinary uses. Originating from the Mediterranean region, it has become a popular choice in gardens for its versatility, aromatic foliage, and attractive flowers.

Unlike the upright growth of common rosemary, the Trailing Rosemary has a prostrate form, making it an excellent choice for cascading over walls, containers, and as a ground cover. Its stems are long and arching, creating a beautiful, trailing effect in the landscape.

One of the key features of Trailing Rosemary is its small, pale blue to lavender-blue flowers that appear in late winter to spring. These flowers are not only visually appealing but also attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies. The needle-like leaves are dark green, highly aromatic, and used widely in cooking, particularly in Mediterranean cuisine.

Trailing Rosemary is highly valued for its drought tolerance and ability to thrive in well-drained, poor soils. It's an excellent choice for xeriscaping, rock gardens, and coastal gardens where other plants might struggle. This herb loves full sun and requires minimal water once established, making it a low-maintenance option for gardeners.

In addition to its ornamental and culinary uses, Trailing Rosemary is often utilized in herbal medicine for its potential health benefits, including its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Overall, Trailing Rosemary is appreciated for its aromatic foliage, attractive flowers, and adaptability to various garden settings. Its trailing habit, ease of care, and culinary value make it a versatile and desirable addition to both ornamental gardens and kitchen herb collections.
