Apalachicola rosemaries are not closely related to the rosemary commonly used as a table herb, but they have silimilar-looking leaves. These short, needle-like leaves are quite fragrant and produce a wonderful minty aroma when bruised or crushed. These are extremely handsome plants even when not in bloom. Mature specimens rarely stand taller than 18 inches, but may have a spread of more than 2 feet. The rounded plants with their deeply green needle-like leaves make an outstanding addition to the landscape. Flowering occurs mostly in the spring and early summer, but a few blooms can be expected any time after that into the fall. The flowers are rather showy. They are very pale lavender to almost blue, two-lipped and spotted on the lower lip. The blooms, like most mints, are especially attractive to bees, but butterflies may visit them on occasion.
