It is native to the Mediterranean region and grows well in Davis. You'll find it all over town: it's often used as a border shrub or hedge, and is common at roadside. There are lots of rosemary bushes on the ["UCD"] campus, and a large number of varieties of the herb are found in the ["Mediterranean Collection"] at the western edge of the ["Arboretum"]. Much of the rosemary in Davis has blue or purple flowers, but some varieties have white, pink or yellow ones.</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 3: </td> <td> Line 3: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- Often used as a border shrub in Davis, it can be found all over the place in town, often right at the side of the road. Edible, fresh bundles can often be found at the ["Farmers Market"], and throughout the year at ["Safeway"]. The dried leaves can be found at virtually every ["Supermarkets" grocery store].</span> </td> <td> <span>+ The best way to get a sense of its flavor is to rub your hands against a bush and smell the waxy, piny, minty oil that has rubbed onto them. (It probably initially evolved as a defense against herbivores, but it's also really tasty.) The flavor goes well with ["Meat Lab" meat] and poultry, and also is terrific with roasted potatoes. Culinarily, rosemary is most connected with the cuisine of southern France. Fresh rosemary is much more interestingly flavored than dried. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 5: </td> <td> Line 5: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> The <span>name rosemary has nothin</span>g to do with the rose or Mary, but derives from the Latin name <span>rosmarinus</span>, which is presumed to mean "dew of the sea", though some think it too may be derived from an earlier name. </td> <td> <span>+ You can often buy bundles of rosemary at the ["Farmers Market"] and throughout the year at ["Safeway"]. </span> The <span>dried leaves can be found at virtually every ["Supermarkets" </span>g<span>rocery store].<br> + <br> + The name rosemary has nothing</span> to do with the rose or Mary, but derives from the Latin name <span>''rosmarinus''</span>, which is presumed to mean "dew of the sea", though some think it too may be derived from an earlier name. </td> </tr> </table> </div> Rosemaryhttp://daviswiki.org/Rosemary2005-03-29 15:53:42JabberWokkyAdded image. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Rosemary<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- </span>Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.) is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant evergreen needle-like leaves that are used in cooking.
