"Rock rose" and rosemary in January


"Rock rose" and rosemary in January

I have got this rosemary about three years ago from a friend who visited Corsica. Since that time it notoriously bloom since December till March as if still in Corsica. I guess, it is programmed by its original home more, then by nature.

Nice plants:) but if I may - the plant you're referring to as a rock rose here in UK has been called as 'leeks' - don't ask me why, lol. Rock rose is a common name for Cistus. Leeks = Sempervivum. I guess yours is a translation from the common name in your language:)

lol. ok.Thank you.Yes, I know this name Sempervivum (forever living) but liked more Slovak literal translation now, as it explains the combination better. Leeks sounds interesting...:)
