The Federally endangered Conradina etonia was discovered by our friend, Bob McCartney of Woodlanders in Putnam County, Florida, in 1990 and subsequently introduced by Woodlanders Nursery. Less than 2000 plants exist at the nineteen sites in the Florida panhandle (around the Etoniah Creek State Forest) where it can be found growing in deep white sandy soils. In our garden, Conradina etonia has proven very easy to grow in well-drained garden soils, where it forms a 2' tall x 3' wide shrub, although 5' tall specimens have been reported in the wild. Each branch is clothed in deliciously fragrant green oval-shaped foliage and further adorned from late spring through summer with clusters of 5-7 light lavender flowers, which are larger than normal for the genus.
