Rosemary Foxtail' is a low growing perennial herb, with bushy branching habit (like a fox's tail!) and the typical rosemary fragrant, evergreen needle-like leaves, it shows the underside of the leaves more, so it is more silvery and upright and therefore more showy than the Rosemary officinalis. It is native to the Mediterranean region.

Rosemary is sometimes used as an ornamental herb as it can easily be pruned into hedges or used in topiary. Rosemary flowers are most often a deep blue but can also be pink or white depending on the variety and bloom throughout spring and summer with some varieties having very long or unexpected flowering periods.

    About the Rosemary Foxtail

    Care Instructions

    Rosemary can be grown in the ground or in a pot. Rosemary does not like wet roots, so a raised beds or a container is ideal. Let the soil dry out between waterings. Be careful not to over water. Cover in cold winters.

    Position, sunlight and more

    Rosemary likes warm sunny, well drained conditions and is pretty robust.

    Height and Spread

    Rosemary Foxtail can grow up to 150cm and spread up to 90cm. Pruning will keep it much smaller.

    Feeding, Pruning & more

    Feeding - Rosemary should thrive in most soils. In a container, an annual balanced fertiliser, after it has flowered can be added.
    Pruning - The best time to prune is just after flowering, around spring time, this gives the plant enough growing time before the winter.
    Propagation - Take cuttings after flowering, find stems where you have dead wood (not dead though) just where the new growth is.

    Our pot & plant size explained

    At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

    We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

    Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

    Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

    Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
