I love rosemary, and of all the varieties that I've grown this one has to be the most deliciously pungent BY FAR. I haven't yet overwintered it, but it's in a very protected spot--where I sometimes even get lantana to overwinter--here in my zone 7 garden. I'm hopeful it will stick around for many years to come.

Update: It's January, and so far my plants of this rosemary variety are still looking perfect. If temps drop into the twenties this winter I will cover 'Santa Barbara' with a little leaf litter. Keeping my fingers crossed it will overwinter!
