Arbor Gate's Picks
of the Month

Hill Hardy Rosemary

May 9, 2022 Back to Picks >

Herb Picks featured for 2022 are especially associated with Madalene Hill, who either discovered the specific herb and introduced it into the marketplace or because it has been named in her honor. During every year, these herbs are found scattered throughout Arbor Gate gardens and especially in The Madalene Hill Herb Garden located at the Herb House entry.

One of the best upright rosemary varieties for our climate; it was named for Madalene Hill in recognition of the extensive research she has conducted over the years to determine which of the rosemary varieties will perform best in the South.  Hill Hardy is reliable throughout the year, though a bit of protection in any extremely low winter temperatures will prepare it to take off again in spring weather. A wonderful rosemary for the avid cook.
