Velvet Elvis grows to approx. 70cm high x 80cm wide, and prefers a well-drained position in part shade. Liven up a shady spot with rock n’ roll cool - Velvet Elvis is great for informal borders, garden edges or mixed bed plantings.

Rosemary is a classic herb with timeless appeal. It’s tough, intensely aromatic and flavourful to boot. Rosemary can be used to great effect as a low hedge or evergreen shrub. It’s drought tolerant, pest resistant and easy to grow. Every Aussie garden needs rosemary, and every lamb roast needs it too! Snip off a little of the fresh new growth to season meats, vegies and sauces – or dry to use later.
Rosemary ‘Lamb Roast’ will be one of many new additions to our ever-expanding ‘Incredible Edibles’ range.
