Rosemary

It is believed that this plant grows in abundance where the woman rules the home but it is probably best to say that the strong flavoured evergreen shrub is associated with remembrance, with sprigs often being placed in funeral wreaths or carried at country funerals. It is aromatic and can be found across Europe and the Mediterranean, with needle-shaped leaves (blue-green, silver and gold striped varieties). It flowers in either mild winters or late spring and produces blue, white or pink flowers.
