Rosemary is an aromatic evergreen shrub native to the Mediterranean. This woody, perennial herb smells similar to pine and has silvery, needle-like leaves and delicate flowers. Used fresh or dried, the leaves are used as a flavoring in foods such as holiday turkey, rosemary chicken, lamb, and pork. The stems, without their leaves, can be used as skewers for kabobs. Rosemary not only tastes good in culinary dishes, but it is also a good source of calcium, iron, and vitamin B6. Rosemary is attractive and drought tolerant, therefore it is used as an ornamental plant in gardens and for xeriscaping. Plants tolerate light frost and can be grown in containers.
