Rosemary Irene is a low mounding form with a spreading habit, making it perfect for landscaping in both the home garden, and public open space. Irene produces a profuse display of deep blue flowers throughout mid-winter that resist bleaching, and has deliciously aromatic foliage, typical of the Rosemary herb. This is an all round tough garden performer, being tolerant of both heat and frosts. It also exhibits resistance from disease that can be common in some rosemary. Grows approx. 75cm tall x 1.75 wide.
