The Chef’s Choice Culinary Rosemary from the Southern Living Plant Collection is what you have been looking for! It was added to the Collection for two main reasons: it has a compact controlled mounding growth habit that makes it perfect for the low-maintenance gardener, AND it has a higher oil content, which is ideal for the culinary aficionado!
Furthermore, in spring this garden gem will produce petite violet-blue flowers. Snip them off and bring them inside as cut flowers. You’ll enjoy the fragrance as well as the color interest.
The Chef’s Choice Culinary is a drought and heat-tolerant variety with impressive salt tolerance. So coastal gardeners can plant without fear!
We recommend placing in a garden bed or container garden in or near outdoor living areas so you can enjoy the sweet fragrance in the breeze.
Reaches a mature size of 12-18″ H x 12″ W, with no maintenance required!
Hardy from USDA Zones 7-10, and down to -10° F once fully established in your landscape.
Plant in Full Sun exposure for best results.
Water your new plant 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. During the second growing season, water 1-2 times per week. Once it has over two growing seasons in your landscape, provide supplementary water only in times of drought.
Prefers rich garden soil with good drainage.
Top dress your soil with 3-4 inches of compost or composted manure every year to provide steady food for your newest garden addition.
Fertilize with a balanced, organic fertilizer in spring to promote growth and the health of your plant. Stop fertilizing in late summer to early fall in order to encourage the hardening off of foliage for the winter.
Plant Chef’s Choice 18-24 inches apart in the herb or kitchen garden.

The rosemary arrived looking very healthy after a 600+ mile trip in a well packaged box. I will definitely be ordering more plants from Plants by Mail very soon.

Ordered 3 Chef’s Choice Rosemary plants. They arrived 3 days late, all three were very stressed (lack of water) the medium they were planted in was very dry and plants were root bound. Two of the plants have started to recover, the third plant did not make it and was dead within two days. I do not purchase plants through the mail, however these were the only ones available, but will not purchase again.

Plants were packaged very well. I wanted a different looking plant in my sun area and this fit perfectly with Daylilies, Hamellias, and various perennial annuals.

This poor thing arrived almost dead. Nothing like the picture. It looked sick. Not a good experience .

This poor thing arrived almost dead. Nothing like the picture. It looked sick. And it’s been dying a slow death in spite of my efforts to bring it back to life. Very disappointing experience.

The first two I ordered were great – healthy and beautiful. This last one I ordered/received didn’t look very healthy, was cockeyed and somewhat yellow rather than bright green.. Disappointed.

Love this variety of rosemary. The plants I ordered were healthy and a good size. They did well this last winter in zone 7B in Oklahoma. They did not freeze. Very happy.

I have ordered many plants by mail because I can’t seem to find exactly what I’m looking for locally and when this rosemary arrived along with one other plant I ordered, I couldn’t believe how well both plants looked and how well they were packed!! I was truly amazed. I am so very pleased with your service and I no longer plan to order from any other company. Thank you so much!!
