Growing & using Trailing Rosemary

Mounded Mature Trailing Rosemary in Full Bloom

Trailing Rosemary has been forced by its surroundings to grow up a four foot lamp post. It is also growing around and over a miniature red rose bush planted near the post.

Trailing Rosemary drapes down 3 feet.

A vigorous grower, Trailing or Creeping Rosemary climbs over itself and easily reaches heights of three feet or more if not pruned. Planted in a second story window box, it would trail all the way to the ground.

Rosemarys are winter blooming plants that set buds over the summer. If pruning is needed to shape the plant, be sure to do this right after it has finished blooming.

Rosemary’s genus has been reclassified as Salvia. Previously it was in the genus Rosmarinus. All Rosemary is now botanically known as Salvia rosmarinus. Common names have not changed. So instead of Rosmarinus officinalis “Trailing Rosemary”, the correct name is now Salvia rosmarinus “Trailing Rosemary”. We will, as time goes by and more folks get used to this, change all botanic references for these plants.

This plant is often available in plug trays. These trays hold 128 of all the same plant. They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by an inch. Check here to see if Trailing Rosemary Plug Trays are available.
