Rosmarinus officinalis camphoriferum

Botanical Properties

Rosemary is a small shrub belonging to the Lamiaceae family. It is often found in the typical Provence landscape, and is an integral part of many a Mediterranean cliché. When farmed, rosemary can reach up to 2m in height. It has evergreen, needle shaped leaves that are green on top and grey underneath. Its flowers grow in clusters, and come out in pale blue or purple colours. 

Origin and history
