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.

Zones: 7 - 10

Size: 6'H x 6'S

Light: Full Sun

Bloom: Dark Blue, Spring

Uses: This Rosemary is a great culinary herb that produces a pine-like scent and a rich flavor. 'Tuscan Blue' is also a great aromatic ornamental herb and can be shaped into topiaries, wreaths and grown indoors easily.

Tips: Like most strains of Rosemary, 'Tuscan Blue' is drought resistant and needs little watering.

3 of 5 No go July 8, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Pa  
Plants arrived, packaged well, planted very next day. Should have been a good location but never grew. We have had LOTS of rain, maybe a factor.

5 of 5 So far so good April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Ana C from Lacoochee, FL United States  
I got this one at the end of the autumn shipping season last year and it is now March 7th, almost the official start of spring.  I did transplant it to a larger pot and it has stayed in my yard all winter long and has grown some and is nice and healthy.  I need to transplant it again.  No flowers yet, but it is winter.  I look forward to seeing what happens in the warmer weather.   I love the scent of rosemary.

5 of 5 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)
