Rosemary is an evergreen woody perennial shrub with aromatic, needle-like leaves and gray, scaly bark. Rosemary bushes can grow up to 6 ft (1.8 m) tall with a spread of 4-5 ft (1.2-1.5 m). The plants stay smaller in pots. The leaves resemble needles and are about 1 in (2.5 cm) long with a pungent fragrance, somewhat reminiscent of pine. The flowers appear in winter and spring, are pale blue, about 1 in (2.5 cm) long, and arranged in clusters of 2 or 3. Rosemary flowers, like those of most mints, are semi-tubular with an upper lip and a lower lip; the upper lip has two lobes and the lower lip has three lobes.

NOTE: More people probably kill Rosemary by over watering it than under watering it.
