Blue Boy rosemary is a smaller variety, growing only to a couple of inches tall. That makes it a perfect ground cover or container plant. It has a blue flower, which is edible, and fragrant evergreen leaves.

Blue Boy is a perennial shrub that will live for multiple decades if cared for properly. It thrives in zones 8 through 10 if planted in full sun and soil with a pH level between 6.5 and 8.5 and good drainage.

Don’t give this one too much water, as it prefers near drought conditions.
