- plant care is not difficult but does require vigilance.
- The vines need to be trained early when they are young.
- You may use plant ties or just weave them through trellis sections.
- Fertilize the plant in spring just before new growth appears.
- Pinch off the tips of the vines in the second year to promote branching which will fill the trellis with bushy growth.
Where winter hardy, grow in herb gardens, borders or foundations. Ornamental specimen or low hedge. Container plants are attractive additions to patios, decks and other sunny areas around the home.
- The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
Rosemary is often a difficult plant to overwinter indoors. It is susceptible to powdery mildew, particularly when air circulation is poor. Botrytis is also a potential concern. Root rots may occur if plants are overwatered. Watch for aphids, mealybugs, whiteflies and spider mites on indoor plants (less of a problem on outdoor plants).
