This cultivar of rosemary was bred for cold hardiness and should survive where others may not. I’ve had success with mine for several years now, but finally did lose it in the unusually cold weather this winter. I wish I had covered it. It is a very good culinary variety and grows to a nice size and is normally cold hardy to Zone 6 (and we are Zone 7). If you lost your rosemary this year, you may want to consider this variety. In addition, a south facing protected area with full sun would be the ideal location for you rosemary. And if we have another winter like this, I suggest you cover your rosemary with burlap for those cold snaps.
