I am in zone 9b. Will rosemary survive all day, 10+ hours of summer sun?

We have rosemary planted in the ground. We have had it in full sun as well as in partial shade - it thrives either way. Rosemary will get to be at least three feet tall and may create 3-4 foot diameter bunches so be sure to give it some space.

I live in zone 9b, and I have one Rosemary in a container growing nicely. It is a hassle-free herb. I have it outside in a full sun area. I just make sure it gets its water. I also have Basil, this is in partial sun area. It is also a hassle-free herb. Just protect them from bugs.

It should love that! Make sure it has a gritty, well-draining soil (nutrient-poor is fine), and give it a good soak about once a week, or every few days in a major heat wave. Rosemary is a very tough, easy-to-care for plant once established.
