Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Rosemary is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Description

Rosmarinus officinalis

Rosemary grows as a fragrant perennial evergreen shrub, that can be enjoyed for many seasons in the garden in climates with mild winters. The needles have a fragrance similar to that of camphor and pine. As a culinary herb, rosemary's flavor is often used as a compliment to lamb, poultry, fish and many vegetable dishes.

Planting & Care
Plant rosemary in a sheltered, but sunny (to partial sun) location. Rosemary does best in well-drained, poor soils. The garden soil pH should be at least 6.0, and the more alkaline the soil, the more fragrant the rosemary will be. Dig in some lime if the soil is too acid. Rosemary produces woody-stemmed plants with needle-like leaves that can commonly reach 3 feet in height, eventually stretching to 5 feet in warmer climates unless clipped. In zone 8 and farther South, rosemary makes a good evergreen hedge. In zones 7 and colder, grow rosemary in containers that you can bring inside in cold weather. Rosemary can even be trained into topiary shapes. The plants are low-maintenance and tolerant of salt spray, making them a good choice for pots on the beach. fertilize plants annually with a light liquid fertilizer.
