A few years ago we were given a Rosemary plant trimmed in the shape of a tree for Christmas. I planted it in the backyard on a mound. It has grown over 12 feet wide and has beautiful purple blossoms. We decided to take some of the cuttings and plant them out front by the street to keep down the weeds and hopefully to look pretty someday. I also planted some on a mound closer to the front of the house.
