Blooming today, January 23rd
Oh, I love it. I have only been able to get rosemary to bloom for me once. Such a pretty shade of blue.
Hello, Kateri, How are you?
Yes, I'm quite excited about the rosemary as each shrub (I have 3) has lots of buds. I haven't done anything special to them other than repot them in compost-enriched organic soil last October.
Lovely, you've really shown the beauty of something very tiny.
Thank you, Arwen.
This little flower pleasantly surprised me last Sunday while I was cleaning the balcony. I'd been looking at a lot of brown dry and decomposing foliage & then I turned around to see fresh blue. I love being connected to the different seasons on my balcony. Right now it seems to be a stage between winter and spring.
How beautiful and unexpected! I had to come read the comments to make sure I was looking at a flower on a rosemary plant. I have never seen one before! Do you know if our rosemary plants that need to come indoors during the winter in the colder climates will ever bloom?
This cultivar is 'Blue Spire.' All three plants have so many buds but no other flowers have opened yet. They've been outdoors ever since I bought them from the nursery about 16 months ago.
You ask a very good question & I don't know the answer. Perhaps some cooler temperatures are needed for blooming.
