Common Name Gray Rosemary Variety Florida dunes form
Regional Names Hairy Rosemary
Botanical Name Conradina canescens
Description This is by far the easiest of all to grow and as well the most common species in the trade. It has received much more attention form reclamation projects, especially beach fronts & dunes repair in the wholesale market and has thus worked it way into minds of the garden nuts through exposure through these projects. Native to the Gulf Coast of central Florida to Mississippi and a few south Florida inland counties where dry sandhill communities exist unaltered. Yes it is common but,I still think it deserves an educated gardeners merits. Conradina canescens is a small evergreen thin woody shrub that like most Conradinas has 1"long x 1/8"wide foliage. Some thing interesting about this species is unlike others with in this Genus which have rich to dark green foliage, C.canescens has gray/green foliage and produces hundreds of lavender/pinkish small but delightful flowers in mid spring. This shrubs foliage is very sharply fragrant foliage when bruised. At maturity it can grow to 2'High x 3'Wide and loves fun sun all day in very well drained sandy or gritty soils. Gravel and sand will work as a soil amendment.
