Tuscan Blue Rosemary
Formal gardens have been fashionable around the world since the times of early civilisations and still today they remain popular, especially with the resurgence of Tuscan and Victorian landscape styles.
One of the key components of these formal designs is low, clipped hedges that edge the geometric patterns or shapes. These are often referred to as box or boxed hedges. Careful selection of the right plant types for the scale and size of the garden and the climatic conditions are paramount to successful formal hedging. The following selection includes all the most suitable subjects for a broad range of South African garden conditions. For further information on your particular area, consult with your local garden centre or nursery. The aromatic, lance-shaped leaves of this Rosemary are a glossy, dark green colour. It bears whorls of blue, tubular flowers from spring to autumn. Space plants at 35 cm intervals. The recommended height is 35 to 50 cm and the suggested base width is 25 to 35 cm. It is an evergreen with a fast growth rate that grows best in areas that have low summer humidity.
