Rosmarinus officinalis 'Guilded'

Plants under this name have been known for many years. It is similar to 'Genge's Gold'. The particular chimaera that produces the variegation probably recurs. The relative width of the cream and green zones would be expected to vary. Limited observation suggests that 'Guilded' has a wider cream zone but the difference may not be consistent. The plant described in Parkinson's herbal of 1629 as gilded was flecked with gold and cannot be this plant. ['Gilded']
