Can you cook with all types of rosemary?

Considering this, are all types of rosemary edible?
Common rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is desirable for its beautiful spring blooms, hardy nature and versatility. Rosemary has been hybridized to produce a number of cultivars. Because common rosemary is edible, all varieties are edible, but they do slightly vary in flavor and in their growth habits.
Also, can you use any rosemary for cooking? You can use any R. officinalis for cooking, but upright kinds with broader leaves contain more aromatic oil. 'Tuscan Blue' is the favorite of many chefs, but 'Blue Spires' and 'Miss Jessup's Upright' are also good.
Subsequently, one may also ask, which variety of rosemary is best for cooking?
Scented rosemary is best for cooking because of its excellent flavor and soft leaves. Blue Boy, Spice Islands, and White rosemary are also used in cooking. Arp, Dancing Waters, Golden Rain, Pink, and White varieties are more often used as landscape plants.
Can Rosemary be poisonous?
Ingestion of large quantities of rosemary may cause stomach and intestinal irritation, kidney damage and/or toxicity.
