Tuscan Blue Rosemary Plants

Rosmarinus officinalis 'Tuscan Blue'.

Herb gardening with rosemary plants is a delight - a fragrant aromatic herb with wonderful qualities that add much to the garden.

Tuscan Blue has exceptionally rich dark blue flowers that smother the branches all summer long. Historically known as a sign of friendship, loyalty, good luck and remembrance, Rosemary is a fragrant herb and this upward growing version makes a great addition to your home or garden.

This aromatic herb is a very fast growing rosemary plant, up to 4 ft tall, whose leaves have an abundance of oils that are especially fragrant and flavorful. These plants have a strong pine scent and produce masses of flavorful foliage you can use in a variety of recipes. Its flavor is strengthened by the amount of light it gets, so planting this variety in a partially shady spot will produce a milder tasting result.

Also prized for its ornamental qualities, the Tuscan Blue grows upright and erect, unlike its ground covering cousin, the Prostrate Rosemary. Try the stems in fresh summer bouquets. This herb is a Zone 8 so protect in cold winters or bring indoors and plant in a great looking pot and container and enjoy this delicious culinary herb all winter long. It likes full sun and well-drained soil.

Wonderful scent & flavor May 8, 2017
Reviewer: John Bales from Lewisville, AR United States  
I ordered this rosemary four or five years ago. After a year where it had grown very nicely in a pot, I took a few cuttings to root in case something happened to the original plant. Well, it did, but one of the cuttings rooted and grew a nice plant by the end of summer. Before cold weather i planted it in a flowerbed and didn't expect it to survive the unusually cold winter.  Next spring it was just fine and took off. Now after a few years it's a shrub nearly 3' in diameter and 24" high. Unlike other rosemaries I've had I haven't seen it bloom but it has an outstanding scent and flavor, in my opinion much better than Arp. I highly recommend. (Am growing in Region 8A)

It Smells Wonderful! April 27, 2015
Reviewer: Rachel Burns from Fort Campbell, KY United States  
Rosemary is such a fresh smell and it makes me think of home. This is thriving well in our weather, but there are a few pieces turning brown each day since arrival.

Tuscan blue Rosemary November 30, 2014
Reviewer: janet arceneaux from LaBelle, FL United States  
I recieved my newest order of herbs and all are doing fine.  As we are in the season of flucuating temps, I have put all my herbs in my greenhouse.  They came "alive" within 2 days are are all doing well.  My Patchouli still looks a little tired but I expect it will perk up soon too....I hope.  I so enjoy purchasing my plants from Growers Exchange and will do so again in the future.
