Use bog rosemary as a ground cover or toward the front of a shrub bed. It makes a good companion for heather, rhododendrons, azaleas and mountain laurel--all acid lovers. This shrub also solves planting problems in the low-lying, boggy areas of the property where drainage is poor or where there are springs. Kept moist, it also looks good in rock gardens.
Cultivation of bog rosemary is a bit tricky. While it is basically a tough, native plant, it does not always do well when transplanted into a yard. It has fairly specific preferences as to soil and moisture and it is not always easy for the homeowner to successfully replicate its native environment.
