Some plants are nearly perfect and Arp Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis Arp) ranks among those that are. First, it is edible, so it’s a practical selection for any landscape in zones 6 through 8. It’s also a fragrant herb that gardeners can’t help touching as they pass just to smell the scent. Rosemary also produces tiny light purple flowers that bees enjoy above its dark greenish-gray foliage.
And there’s more: Arp Rosemary is a low-water plant that can handle some drought. It grows in an upright manner as a small shrub, reaching about 3 to 5 feet high and 3 feet wide by maturity. Plant a few to form a low and fragrant evergreen border. Deer leave rosemary alone another plus for the aromatic herb. Be sure to plant one (maybe in a container) as part of a kitchen garden or where you can easily harvest stems to bring indoors for cooking or making sachets.
Arp Rosemary Care
Plant Arp Rosemary in full sun (at least 6 hours a day) and give it room to breathe, with no other plants crowding it too much. Be sure to place it in soil that drains well to avoid letting your rosemary get wet feet. Once established, rosemary needs only occasional watering, although it might need a moisture boost during peak heat of summer. Water rosemaries growing in containers more often, when the soil feels dry an inch or so down.
Arp Rosemary needs little other care. You can prune it for shape in early spring or remove branches that have broken or browned. It helps to brush snow off your rosemary after a heavy snowfall. There is no need to fertilize your rosemary, but feel free to add a little organic matter each spring or give it a light (less than recommended for heavy feeders) feeding with a fertilizer designed for edible plants.
Arp Rosemary Spacing
To ensure good air circulation, plant each Arp Rosemary at least 3 feet apart if creating a row or hedge.
