There are two main types of rosemary plants, both of which are quite fragrant. There are upright varieties and creeping or prostrate varieties, each with different uses, but both edible.
Uprights make splendid hedges, topiary, and specimen plants in the garden, giving them double duty since you can also snip your seasoning from your hedge!
Creeping types are excellent as ground covers, spilling over walls or adding stability to slopes.
In addition to these two main types, there are also dwarf cultivars that have a mounded habit. These are perfect for borders, containers, or rockeries. They’re also good for training and trimming as bonsai or topiary.
