Rosemary does not like to be overwatered. It also requires good drainage.

It's probably humidity too. We can grow them for a while here, usually in a raised bed for drainage but if too much water doesn't get them the humidity will.

I knew of a rosemary plant in Central Florida about 25 feet from a small lake. It was at least 6 feet tall. We used to cut branches to use as skewers over the barbeque.
