Eriocephalus africanus/ African Rosemary or Cape Snow Bush

A very attractive winter flowering wild rosemary from the Cape Floral Kingdom in South Africa.  African Rosemary grows 1-2m in height and 1.0-1.5m across.   It has thin silvery grey aromatic leaves, and dense showy white florets in the winter from November to March. The flowers mature into attractive woolly white seed balls.

African Rosemary can be used as a culinary herb.  It is widely used as a traditional African medicine.  
Plants prefer a sunny well drained position and tolerate coastal sites. Give them enough space to form a natural rounded shape.  Plants can be pruned lightly after flowering or more strongly into hedges or balls/standards.

Sow in spring or autumn in a tray of moist seed compost.  Cover lightly with vermiculite or seed compost and keep at 10-15°C. Germination takes about 2-3 weeks. Pot on seedlings when they are big enough to handle and out into the garden after the last frost..

price is for 15 seeds
