The typical coast rosemary is a durable, soft grey shrub that adapts well to dryland plantings. In this compact selection, darker grey leaves are densely held on a more compact rounded shrub to 2-3 feet; deep lilac flowers appear for a long season in spring and summer. Sun, reasonably well drained soil, moderate to little watering when established. Hardy to 20 degrees F. or less.
