This catalog lists most of the varieties I am growing or plan to grow, however, it is not possible to list everything. Some plants are tricky to propagate; others are too new for me to describe in any detail. Demand for certain varieties is sometimes greater than I anticipated and we run out. Usually, during the Spring season, there is another crop on the way. I can guarantee the quality of our plants because we grow them ourselves. I cannot guarantee that every item listed will be available at any given time. Containers are likely to be home to many of the rosemaries in your collection because so many varieties are not winter hardy. Fortunately, rosemary performs well in pots.
