This Texas variety should be listed as 'Taste as Big as Texas' in our local recipe books. (See general properties below:) We're sure it would taste wonderful on dishes like a rub on big grilled T-Bone steaks, leaves sprinkled on baked country wedge fries & pan seared catfish filets.

'Arp' rosemary was named after a little northeast Texas town called 'Arp'. Madeline Hill, author, herbologist heard of a variety that had survived a very cold winter in the area of Arp in the single digits. Many plants died that week, residents said temps didn't rise above 32 all week. This variety however survived and in 1987 was named Hardy Hill. Data info @ forums.gardenweb.com
