Rosemary 'Arp' Plants
Rosemary is a highly pungent herb that is primarily used in meat dishes. The lance shaped leaves contain high amounts of essential oils, that when brushed or crushed, release a pine-like scent. We use this herb primarily on venison and turkey. 'Arp' is hardier to cold than most rosemary, but it is still best to bring indoors in zones seven and below. Rosemary plants make nice houseplants and can be trimmed into scented Christmas trees.
