There is a vulgar belief in Gloucestershire and other counties that rosemary will not grow well except where the mistress is "master," and so touchy are some of the lords of creation upon this point that we have more than once had reason to suspect them of privately injuring a growing rosemary in order to destroy evidence of their want of authority.

Renown for strengthening memory, rosemary has thus become a symbol of fidelity in weddings as well as remembrance at funerals. As well, it had been custom in French hospitals, once upon a time, to burn an incense of rosemary and juniper berries in order to purify the air. Its reputation for purification does not end there, as the dried herb is used in storage chests and as a strewing herb to deter pests, and a bush outside the door is said to equally protect the home from pests and from evil.

It is claimed that a rosemary plant of at least 33 years old will grow in breadth but no longer in height, thus a representation of the life of Christ, taking on divine purpose after becoming mortally mature.
