In spring and summer, it produces small pale pink flowers that have a deeper pink stripe on the lower lip. Commonly known as Rosemary, this plant has recently been re-classified, and the name Rosmarinus officinalis 'Majorca Pink' is now a synonym. This species is part of the Royal Horticultural Society “Plants for Pollinators” initiative to showcase plants that support pollinator populations by providing ample nectar and pollen. An excellent choice for encouraging pollinating insect wildlife into your garden!
