Iuma loves the aromatic smell of Rosemary Cones, and that’s why it’s her plant of the week. They are great container plants and make an excellent “thriller”— the tall plant you place in the center of a large pot. Surround them with pansies, viola, ornamental cabbage, cyclamen, alyssum, snapdragons, etc., for a genuinely stunning cool-season color bowl.
This native Mediterranean evergreen loves the sun and heat of Texas and can generally withstand our winter weather (to be safe, cover or bring inside if temps approach 20 degrees). Rosemary prefers being on the dryer side, so wet the soil only, and be careful not to over-water.
