The herb just about all of us grow in our gardens is another popular holiday house plant. Like the Norfolk Island pine, rosemary can come decorated and shaped to resemble miniature Christmas trees.
Besides their decorative quality, rosemary trees make a great buy this time of year because you can use them in the kitchen. Keep it growing during the winter and you’ll have an impressive shrub to start the next garden season while the rest of us are buying spindly rosemary seedlings. (Rosemary Tree-2 gallon, $79)
