|I have a 3 to 4 foot tall rosemary plant hedge I have growing in my median strip between the sidewalk and the street curb. They have grown quite well and bloom several times a year. I have always watered them in the hot dry summer but I wonder if it is necessary or do they like a dry environment. They do seem to grow quickly for rosemary variety. I am not sure of the species but they were in the bargain shelf at our local big box store. I notice that now as they have become larger they tend to keep other weeds and grass from around their base.|

|It sounds like you have doing everything right! I'd continue that path. Other than maybe keeping it pruned. In some climates Rosemary can be difficult but your success proves otherwise. I would keep watering in that zone in summer as that can be tough conditions for any plant. Would love to see a photo... &
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.
Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

|I water my plant every week or two during our annual summer drought, when we get no rain at all. It's probably a bad idea to let your rosemary go the whole summer without water.|
