Rosemaries are an hardy plant that will grow in almost any Australian garden.  They produce masses of blooms which range from deep blue through clear pink to dusky white. Roman Beauty is a dwarf and compact bush rosemary with a unusual arching habit. Makes a neat mounding shrub that is great for borders and on terraced walls.  Use the aromatic leaves for potpourri and cooking.


‘Roman Beauty’ likes a dry and sunny position.  An annual prune and feed with Osmocote Slow Release will keep it looking its best.  It grows very well alongside mass plantings of Lavandula  ‘Hazel’, Lavandula  ‘Riverina James’ or Rosmarinus  ‘Mason’s Finest’
