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. ‘Portugese Pink’ is an upright shrub with deep glossy green leaves and crystal pink flowers.  It has the typical aromatic foliage of the genus which makes a great addition to the kitchen.  It should grow to between 1.2 and 1.5 m tall and 75cm wide.  


‘Portugese Pink’, like its close relative, Tuscan Blue, makes a great hedge or specimen plant and is good for topiary work.  An annual; prune and feed with Osmocote Outdoors Trees & Shrubs will keep it looking its best.  It grows very well alongside mass plantings of Lavandula  ‘Avonview’, Lavandula  ‘Hazel’ or Lavandula  ‘Pippa White’
