Rosemary, a native plant to the Mediterranean, is a fragrant herb used in cooking.  It is commonly used as a flavoring for meats, breads, marinades and dressings.  Rosemary is also used for scenting soaps and cosmetics, and is said to have medicinal properties.  Rosemary is an evergreen shrub that is hardy to temperatures of 5F.  In Ohio most gardeners typically treat this plant as an annual but gardeners can over-winter plants by putting them in a container and moving them inside.  Rosemary grows best in sunny, well-drained, moist sites.  Plants should be planted approximately one foot apart from each other.  Prune stems throughout the season as needed.  Leaves can be used fresh or dried.
