Some people have been known to use the aromatic essential oil for other purposes such as relaxing aching joints and even as an antiseptic. Growing best in a hot, dry, sunny position with moist well-drained soil. It is drought tolerant once established and prefers to stay fairly dry in winter. Prune after flowering to maintain a bushy, compact habit. Rosmarinus officinalis Benenden Blue grows to a height and width of up to 1 metre. Note: Edible flowers or foliage should be picked fresh from an area that has not been exposed to any gardening chemicals and washed before consumption.

If you are unsure whether a flower or foliage is edible, do not eat it; instead, consult a Botanist or your health provider.
