Rosmarinus officinalis Lockwood de Forest
Lockwood de Forest Rosemary is known for its dark green foliage and lavender flowers. Its unique, cascading habit will soften the edge of any container planting. Blooms repeatedly. Great in rock gardens! This variety is known as Santa Barbara Rosemary, as it was discovered in the Santa Barbara garden of Lockwood and Elizabeth De Forest. The De Forests speculated that it was a spontaneous hybrid between an upright and a prostrate rosemary that were planted in their garden in the 1920s and 30s. Lockwood De Forest eventually became the most common of prostrate Rosemary cultivars in Santa Barbara. Zone 7-10.
