Rosemary

rosemaryRosemary is predominately grown in the Mediterranean areas in warmer climates.  The needle-like leaves grow on the plant in a shrub form and belongs to the mint family.  It is excellent with all types of meat and fish dishes.

I grew a huge rosemary plant along my walkway when I lived in South Florida.  However here in Michigan I find it tempermental to being overwintered indoors due to the dry heat in the house.  It is very important to keep the plant continously watered to avoid the plant and eventually the needles from drying out and dropping from the plant.  Here is more information about the rosemary plant, how to grow it and where to order.  I purchase the plants and not the seeds from a local source.
