Foliage is dark green and needle-like much like a spruce or fir. A white band on the underside gives it a gray coloration. Use rosemary sparingly as an accent to food as the flavor can be somewhat pungent and resinous. Use with fish, pork, lamb, poultry and game. Rosemary dries out quickly in an indoor growing environment usually leading to brown leaf tips and die-back. This does not mean water the plant more because this can lead to root rots and loss of the plant. Keeping the plants cool and placing them on pebble filled saucers filled with water helps to increase humidity around the plant and reduce foliage damage.
