This Rosemary is a Chef’s Favorite!Rosemary can elevate just about any dish it touches, which is why it’s been a favorite of chefs for centuries. It’s the quintessential rub for meats – chicken, steak, wild game, fish. It makes vegetables sing and raises roasted potatoes to a savory work of art. It adds zing to after-dinner drinks. It even works on fruit. (Don’t believe us? Next time you have some not-quite-ripe peaches, give them a few minutes run in the oven with a coat of rosemary and brown sugar and check back with us!)The problem is that you buy a bunch of rosemary at the store and you only intend to use it in one recipe, so what you don’t use languishes in the back of the fridge until it turns brown, then black, then to a nasty mush that may actually take on a life of its own.Let us offer you an alternative. The hands down favorite rosemary of top chefs worldwide is Tuscan Blue (Rosmarinus officinalis ‘Tuscan Blue’). Nature Hills sells top grade Tuscan Blue that you can grow in your warm summer garden or on your kitchen windowsill. You’ll always have a fresh supply of the most flavorful rosemary you can buy available at your fingertips!Tuscan Blue is super easy to care for and very hardy. (It can’t abide cold weather or wet feet, though, so plant it accordingly.) In zone 8-10 it grows into a 6 foot tall shrub that will bloom sky-blue flowers in spring and summer. Use springs in olive oil. Use the firm stems as barbecue skewers. Dry the leaves for the winter.This is one herb that you really shouldn’t live without. Order yours today.

True dwarf shines in the shade!  OK plant lovers, we are here answer a burning question for you. We know that you have seen this plant around, if not in your neighborhood then in the landscaping around a local business. You’ve probably heard it called ‘Heavenly Bamboo’ because its leaves and stems are so very bamboo-like. But the question is often “Is it really bamboo?” Nature Hills has the definitive answer for you! And the answer is….NO! It’s not. It is actually in the barberry family! (We hope that you can sleep better at night, now that you’ve got that answered.)So, even though it isn’t true bamboo, it is still a beautiful and very useful landscape plant, especially in those areas that need some texture and color. The problem is most nandina’s can get pretty large. The current trend toward smaller plants for smaller gardens doesn’t leave room for some of these big plants. But Harbor Dwarf Nandina (Nandina domestica ‘Harbor Dwarf’) is perfectly sized for modern gardens. It adds a shot of bright red to sunny borders or shady beds alike. (It can even handle full shade, but won’t color up as much as in the sun.)This semi-evergreen is a true ‘plant it and forget it’ shrub. It doesn’t need pruning or coddling to keep it looking great. It fits into any garden style from modern to cottage to rustic. It is great around architectural features, under windows or around ponds as it accents but stays low enough to not cover or block views.This is a wonderful and hardworking landscape shrub. If you need good filler or groundcover, then order some today! * Semi-evergreen* Full sun to full shade* Easy care* Heat and drought tolerant once established* Showy foliage* Fall color* True dwarf.
