Rosemary (Rosy) Seed

Item no longer available

We are no longer offering this product. If you would like additional information about this item, or assistance finding something similar, please contact us.


Nothing flavors a savory dish like rosemary. Used for centuries, both as a homeopathic medicine and as a culinary herb. According to legend, it was draped around the Greek goddess Aphrodite when she rose from the sea. Its piney, woodsy flavor is a splendid complement to roasted meats and poultry. Grows into a small evergreen shrub, covered with needle-like leaves, and tiny pink or blue flowers. Can even be pruned into topiary, if you like! Prefers to dry out between waterings. May be preserved by drying. Woody perennial, member of the mint family. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.

Multiple seed order
This is my 3rd time ordering from Stark Brothers and once again was impressed with the speed of shipment. Received my seeds in great condition as usual. Always have good germination with my order too. Will be starting my seeds this coming weekend and expect only good outcome.
