Rosemary tea tree grows up to 15 feet tall, says owner

ROSEMARIA, Calif.

— A rosemary plant grown for tea tree seeds grew up to about 15 feet high and weighed about 4,000 pounds when it was first planted on a ranch in southern California, the plant’s owner said Monday.

The owner of Rosemary’s Garden, which is located in Rosemaria, said the plants are used to make tea.

They have become so popular in recent years that they have a full-time nursery, he said.

The plant grew to about 16 feet tall and weighed 1,300 pounds when the plant was first put in a nursery.

The nursery is being set up in Rosemary, said Michael Dickson, who has been a member of the Rosemary Plant Club for nearly 20 years.

He has a daughter who also plants roses, he told The Associated Press.

The Rosemary garden is in the backyard of his ranch.

The plant was originally planted in the 1930s by a couple, David and Mary L. Johnson.

The garden’s namesake, Rosemary Johnson, was a Texas pioneer who planted roses in her own garden in the 1870s.

She was the first woman to be awarded the U.S. patent for a new garden plant.
