  1. "Rosemary (says zones 7-10)"

    The plant didn't last a week in hot NC. I believe we are zone 7a here.
    French Tarragon is doing well with the heat and humidity.

    I'm in zone 6, borderline 5. Rosemary does phenomenal here. It dies back in the winter but comes back every spring, as do my mints, sage, oregano, marjoram and lavender.

    I'm in zone 9 now, and the rosemary does fantastic. I lost one big older plant in a pot last year during the rainy season because the drainage was blocked. Rosemary does not like wet feet.

    Stepmom, where did you get your French tarragon? We don't have a problem growing rosemary in zone 8. It wintered OK and is doing great. DH transplanted it to another spot for better use in the kitchen.
     
  5. I bought 3 plants from Territorialseed.com (Oregon)

    I'm definately in zone 4 and have 3 rosemary plants in the herb bed. I don't do much to overwinter them, but every year they are here.

    Hello,
    We're in zone 7 here is arid west Texas. The rosemary grows great here and it was 107 a couple days ago. I agree that they don't like too much moisture, which ought to make them just love it here. :rolleyes:
