Why it's a standout: For fine texture and delicate flowers, look no further than edible rosemary. Ranging from 2 to 6 feet tall, this Mediterranean beauty is evergreen, drought resistant, and salt tolerant. It rarely tempts deer and grows well in beds or pots. 'Tuscan Blue' (shown) is known for its long-lasting flowers, while 'Arp' is more cold hardy than other varieties, tolerating Zone 6.
What it needs: Full sun; average to dry, well-drained soil
Zones: 7 to 10
