Daily Inspiration: Hardy-ish Rosemary?

Rosemary is one of those plants that we always have to haul in and out of our houses because of it's tenderness to cold temperatures. Those of us that love to cook with it, or those of us that simply like the look of it become a slave to it's picky weather preferences.
Enter 'Madalene Hill' Rosemary...
Though still labeled a zone 6 (while we are a solid 5), it is still cold hardy to -10! If we choose the right spot (a protected area with southern exposure), we might just get away with planting it outdoors! Is it sad that learning this makes me so excited!? :) I have planted Photinias, Variegated Hollies, and even roses that are labelled zone 6 and they have thrived without a problem so far. We plan on ordering 'Madeline Hill' Rosemary in this spring to try out! Keep watching so you don't miss out!
