Rosemary likes dry to average, well-drained soil. Space plants 18-24” apart. It prefers a sheltered position such as on the south or southwest side of a wall or foundation. It tolerates part shade, but the flavor of the plant may be weakened if it doesn’t get enough sun. Easy to grow, it does not require extra watering. Plant height is 12-18”.
In the summer, fertilize plants after the flowers have appeared. Keep trimmed for a more lush appearance. Prune the plants after flowering. As with all varieties of Rosemary, it performs very well in pots and may be brought indoors for winter use. Drought tolerant.
Attracts honeybees and butterflies. Deer resistant, repels carrot flies outdoors and moths indoors.
