A rosemary shrub. Fascinating little plant, here are some of its uses:
Best known as a culinary plant, rosemary leaves are used to season lamb, fish, soup, and other foods. In the garden, it makes a good shrub or hedge where it is hardy. The prostrate form can be used as a ground cover. Rosemary is elegant and easy in containers. (info found here)
Curiously, they thrive very well here in the desert and can be found decorating shopping malls, schools, parks, neighborhood, parking lots and even in your front yard.
