Planting Guides

To get established in USDA zones 5 & 6, Rosemary must be planted in spring or early summer, not in the fall. Protect your new plants over their first winter or two in your garden. Cover each plant with a generous pile of clean straw or pine needles. This allows the plant's crown (junction of root and branches) to mature and obtain maximum cold hardiness.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Rosmarinus officinalis Arp:

    ARP rosemary is a rich dark green and blooms profusely--large blue flowers. Healthy, no problems, tolerate bad soil and drought. We have had multiple plants along retaining walls without added water or care. However, last winter had severe, windy, wet weather and they didn't survive. I plan to replace them.

      I live in zone 7b (North Carolina) and trying to establish Rosemary in my patio garden. These Arp Rosemary plants arrived in excellent condition. They were green and ready to plant.

      Q & A

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
