Cumberland False Rosemary – Planting Outside In Atlanta

Q: I inherited a Cumberland false rosemary planted in a large outdoor pot. Can this plant survive planted in the ground here?

A: Native plant expert Shannon Pable ( says Cumberland false rosemary, Conradina verticillata, naturally grows in sandy soil on stream banks. I’d suggest planting it where it can get morning sun and afternoon dappled shade. Add coarse sand to soil before planting.
