Arp Rosemary or Rosmarinus officinalis Arp is one of the most fragrant of all herbs! The Arp Rosemary has been introduced as an improved rosemary plant variety which shows better winter hardiness.
The Rosemary Arp tolerates a wide range of growing conditions. It grows best in soil which is light and well-drained. Water thoroughly when soil is dry. Hardy to 18 degrees. This rosemary variety rows to a height of 3 - 4 feet, space 2 - 3 feet apart.
A Mediterranean herb, Arp Rosemary is now widely cultivated outside of Europe. Because it is winter hardy only to about 20°F, rosemary is generally only grown as a potted plant in Wisconsin. Rosemary plants do best in bright light to full sun in well-drained soil. The soil should be kept moist, but good drainage is necessary.
