Garden plants of this species in nature are quite common. The historical homeland of this plant, it is considered to be North America, Eastern and Northern China, Korea, Southern and Northern Europe, Western Siberia and the Arctic. Often found on peatlands, forest tundra and tundra. It grows thickets or groups.
A garden decorated with this evergreen will look amazing throughout the year. It has a height of one meter, its shoots are slightly raised and shrouded in felt omissions.
At the end of autumn, on small stalks, small boxes can be found that remotely resemble chandeliers. It is in them that the seeds ripen, which can later be used for its multiplication. Seeds are sown in pre-prepared boxes or boxes with soil mixed with sand. Seeds are scattered over the soil, but for this the soil used must be loose.
The surface is covered with glass, after which the containers are placed in a cool room. Watering seedlings should be separated or rainwater. The glass is wiped daily. After three weeks of care, you will have the first shoots.
For reproduction of plants in a vegetative way, layering is used. Several thin shoots rooted near the parent bush. The depth of the pit should be about 15 cm. The upper part of the layer is tied to a stick, and the bottom is sprinkled with peat and soil. For rooting layers will need regular watering.
Perhaps the division of the main bush, which is held in the spring. To do this, the main bush is divided into smaller seedlings, which are then seated in the ground. It is mandatory to mulch. It is possible to use the cutting method, however, some skills will be required here. It is better to harvest cuttings in summer, for this purpose shoots of 6 cm are cut. Lower leaves are cut and only upper leaves remain. Rooting should be done only next year.
Absolutely all the varieties of this plant feel great in our gardens. For the best development of wild rosemary, it is recommended to plant it in spring. The plant lives about 30 years, while tolerating severe frosts. The pit, which is filled with a mixture of sand, earth and peat, gives the plant everything necessary for normal growth and development. Fertilizer use is welcome, but in reasonable quantities.
Top dressing is carried out according to plan, once in early spring. During the drought, the plant is watered several times a week, near a bucket of water for one bush. The soil surface is mulched with peat and loosened. This will preserve moisture. It is necessary to take into account the proximity of the roots of the plant, and to loosen the soil gently. Planned and sanitary pruning is not carried out. It is enough to remove all dried twigs in a timely manner. The root system at the wild rosemary, will be formed only a year later, which also needs to be taken into account.
In order for propagation by cuttings to be successful, you need to have some idea of the essence of the process. The process of propagation by cuttings has its own difficulties. Planting material is prepared in the summer. To improve the process of root formation, the cuttings are treated with a 0.01% solution of heteroauxin during the day. To prepare the drug, take one tablet (0.1 g) and dissolve in 2.5 liters of water. After this, the cuttings must be rinsed in water and planted in a greenhouse or in special boxes. The process of root formation takes a long period: by the autumn a callus is formed (a corn-like mass at the end of the cutting), and the roots will appear only by next season.
The aroma of wild rosemary can be considered ambiguous. He beckons to himself and intoxicates, causing a headache. At the same time, it repels insects, protects fur items from moth damage, and finally, has healing properties. If you "forgive" the stupefying effect of the bush and plant it in accordance with the requirements, you can be glad of its unusual flowering. But you need to plant a wild rosemary so that you only see it from afar.
