LION’S TAIL (90 days to flower) Leonotis leonurus- also known as wild dagga, is a mint family species. The plant is a broadleaf evergreen large shrub native to southern Africa. It is known for its medicinal and mild psychoactive properties. A smokeable euphoric, the dried leaves and buds being used throughout history by the native peoples of South Africa as a calming smoke. The shrub grows 3 to 6 ft tall by 1.5 to 3.5 feet wide. The medium-dark green 2–4 inches long leaves are aromatic when crushed. The plant has tubular orange flowers in tiered whorls, typical to the mint family, that encircle the square stems. They rise above the foliage mass during the summer season attracting hummingbirds and bees, with flowering continuing into winter in warmer climates. May become a woody perennial in zone 8 or warmer areas.  SSF
