You’d be hard-pressed to find an easier-to-grow, more versatile herb than Rosemary. Originally grown in the Mediterranean, this herb requires well-drained soil and can handle drought once it’s mature. With its bush-like growth habit, Rosemary works beautifully as a landscape plant, either in pots or in the ground. In the kitchen, it adds flavor to a wide variety of recipes. Harvest tender stems often for best results and use them right away; Rosemary, unlike other herbs, has a stronger flavor when fresh than when dried.
