Stalks Strong Enough to use as Barbecue Skewers!
Fragrant, functional and aromatic, there are plenty of uses for Barbecue Rosemary in the garden. Beautiful purple flowers bloom in the summer and the leaves are a vibrant, green that add a pop of color.
A Plant with Many Uses
An evergreen plant, Barbecue Rosemary is a versatile addition to your garden. Plant a single one for use as fresh picked herbs in your kitchen, or plant several outside in a garden to create a screen. The stalks are long, strong enough to be used as skewers for an additional infusion of herbs into your meal.
An Aromatic Affair
Barbecue Rosemary is commonly used in cooking, and is very fragrant. Its smell is not overpowering though, so you can plant it close to the house and pair it with other herbs such as thyme, sage and parsley. It makes an excellent addition to an herb garden.
Set it and Forget it
Barbecue Rosemary is a tolerant plant. Once a fully-developed root system is in place after the first year, it gains a strong foothold that requires minimal watering throughout the year. This means you can literally set it and have access to fresh herbs throughout the year. It is best planted outdoors, but if you want to pot it use terra cotta for decoration on your deck or patio.
The Barbecue Rosemary plant is fast growing; requiring little care after it is established. However, if you're using it as a shrub, it's okay to prune it as it responds well. Pruning also works well when you're using it as a shrub or a hedge and you can also use it as a decorative accent in a parterre garden.
