Re: Conradina verticillata vs Rosmarinus officinalis?

<< Rosemary is not a hardy herb for Minnesota. Put it in a pot and overwinter
 in the house. My rosemary & bay leaf are growing and can hardly wait to get
 outside.    Peg    MN >>

Hi Peg,  I was told that Conradina verticillata is not the "true" culinary 
rosemary.  I'm not sure, but I think the rosemary I've tried UNSUCCESSFULLY 
to overwinter is Rosmarinus officinalis.  I was hoping to get a plant that 
looked and smelled like rosemary that would actually last from year to year.  
I don't like cooking, but I just love the smell of rosemary.  Peg, have you 
been successful in overwintering it?

If anyone attended Dr. Frank Porter's class "Growing Medicinal Herbs 
Organically" at the Hosta College, how did he relate herbs to hostas?  Did he 
have a list of shade tolerant herbs?  Sounds like a nice way to add fragrance 
to our hosta gardens if there are.  Since many hostas can take a fair amount 
of sun, maybe that's the place to combine them?
