An aromatic European, evergreen herb with grey-green spikes often used to flavour meats and in bouquet garni. Its late spring pretty blue flowers taste very slightly of ginger and look pretty sitting on with creams and ice cream. Along with other grasses and reeds, rosemary was a key ingredient of the grasses and herbs that were strewn over mud floors, used to stuff palliasse, mattresses and pillows.

Being evergreen, rosemary is also a major ingredient in bath pillows and in wardrobe sachets.

The form of rosemary  is also an agreeable motif in textile design and embroidery.
