Plant Details: Cumberland Rosemary
5 - 8
A very rare and endangered, semi-evergreen species that is a low growing woody perennial with small dark green linear (narrow) leaves. The small light lavender flowers are born in abundance in early May into late June. This beautiful Rosemary performs best in partial shade with consistently moist, well drained soils. When planted in full sun this species will make a dense mat of dark green foliage which will remain all summer resembling a ground hugging conifer. It makes an interesting and unusual potted shrub in that it spreads over the top of the pots and cascades down the sides. A great tough perennial to replace the exotic prostrate Rosmarinus rosemary.
