Trailing Irene Rosemary
One of our favorite spillers for walls or terraces, Trailing Irene Rosemary grows only 6 inches or so high but spreads up to 6 feet! Makes a lovely evergreen spiller over a wall or rock, or can be grown as a ground cover under your new fruit tree. Pairs especially well with figs and olives and suppresses any weeds that might try to pop up. Flowers are a beautiful light blue and cover the plant in spring.
