Rosemary: It makes good scents
Rosemary is one of the most versatile herbs as it plays roles in the kitchen, bath, or medicine chest. The tangy scent and fresh green needles give the smell and appearance of evergreens. It has proven itself to have antibacterial properties and has been used to fight diseases from medieval times to the present day. It has a colorful history, being a part of both ancient Greek mythology and the background of Christianity. This tender perennial can grow on the High Plains, but it needs protection from winter weather.
