Rosemary is appreciated the world over as a wonderful culinary herb with its distinctive resiny scent and flavor. 'Arp' rosemary, originating from Arp, Texas, is more cold tolerant than some other varieties, and takes on an upright, irregular shape. A sun and heat lover, 'Arp' can be used as an informal hedge or specimen in dry landscapes, reaching three- to four feet in height and width. Rosemary can be grown in container planters with other herbs, but it will eventually need its own large container to really thrive. The long stiff stems of rosemary can be used as skewers for grilling, and periodic trimming just makes the plant that much bushier. Tip: when drying rosemary leaves for cooking, hang it to dry out of direct sun and in a clean environment until brittle. Don't use heat to dry it, or hang it where it could pick up unpleasant odors (e.g. exhaust fumes from cars in a garage).
