Rosemary's pungent piney scent does indeed bring back remembrances of things past and is indispensible in the kitchen. It's energy and effects are warm, stimulating and satisfying to the mind and body, being especially helpful for discomforts such as indigestion, rheumatism and poor memory due to coldness and poor circulation.

Interesting Notes:

Prefers well-drained, somewhat gravelly soil and will suffer in wet, soggy soil. Prefers alkaline soil. Tender perennial: In zones below 7 bring indoors for winter. Older established plants may survive mild winters when well protected. For container growing, use clay pot large enough to accomodate the roots comfortably and cactus soil blend. To avoid root rot, water only after soil is dry to the touch.
