Rosemary is appreciated the world over as a wonderful culinary herb with its distinctive resiny scent and flavor. 'Salem' rosemary is more cold tolerant than some other varieties, and stays on the smaller side, growing about two feet tall and wide. A sun and heat lover, rosemary does best in well-draining soil and 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).
