Prostrate rosemary is a creeping variety that works well for hanging basket gardens or as a ground cover, or in the herb garden, perennial bed, pots, or rockeries. It usually grows to about 1 foot tall and can have a spread of 4 to 8 feet.
Prostrate rosemary is a warm climate variety that grows in zones 8 to 10. However, if you are in a fringe area between zones 7 and 8, put it next to a south-facing wall to give it a little extra protection.
