But we talkRosemary

DescriptionRosemary is native to the Mediterranean region. Rosemary is a great plant as it is easily cultivated and nearly pest resistant. The name rosemary is a testament to how easy it is to grow. The name rosemary stems from the Latin words ros and marinus which when together form “dew of the sea”. This is because when near the sea, the humidity from the breeze is enough to sustain it. Rosemary’s powerful aromas smell of pine, menthol, and pepper, are also how one could describe the taste of this efficacious herb.
