About Chef's Choice® Culinary Rosemary

The Chef’s Choice Culinary Rosemary from the Southern Living Plant Collection is the Rosemary you have been looking for! This Rosemary 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, 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 Rosemary is a drought and heat tolerant variety with an impressive salt-tolerance. So coastal gardeners can plant without fear!

We recommend using this rosemary 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!

Chef’s Choice Culinary Rosemary Care

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 the Chef”s Choice Culinary Rosemary 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 2 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 new Rosemary.

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.

Chef’s Choice Culinary Rosemary Spacing

Plant your Chef’s Choice Culinary Rosemary 18-24 inches apart in the herb or kitchen garden.

    Beautiful, healthy plant.

  4. Donna Pickering (verified owner)

    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!!
