Rosmarinus officinalis 'Roman Beauty' PP18,192 ('Roman Beauty Rosemary) - A compact and slow growing semi-upright Rosemary with with slightly arching stems bearing narrow mid-green leaves and violet-blue flowers in late winter and spring. This plant will likely get somewhat larger but 2 year old plants only measured 16 inches tall by 12 inches wide. Plant in full sun. As with other Rosemary it is resistant to deer and rabbit predation, tolerant to salt spray, alkaline soils and drought. Hardy to 15°F. This plant was discovered by Christopher Fairweather, nurseryman and garden writer from Beaulieu, Hampshire, England. It reportedly was an open pollinated seedling from an unnamed prostrate Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis “Prostratus Group”) from which it differs by having a more upright and tidier habit. It was noted for its improved habit, mid green foliage on short internodes and was selected for these traits and for its ease of shipping. It was granted US Plant Patent PP18,192 on November 13, 2007 and is being marketed in the United States by PlantHaven. It is also part of the Sunset Garden plant collection marketed as Chef's Choice Rosemary.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Rosmarinus 'Roman Beauty' PP18,192.
