Conradina grandiflora...Large-flowered Rosemary
Over the past few years I have fallen in love with the shrubby evergreen mints of the Southeast. Conradina grandiflora is one of the nicest. It is endemic to the Florida Scrub which means it would be naturally occurring here. Like many of the scrub endemics it is threatened in Florida. This plant was purchased at Wilcox Nursery in Largo, Florida.
