Leonotis

Leonotis menthifolia ‘Savannah Sunset’ full sun  drought tolerant

Conjuring images of romping safari lions, wondrous dense whorls of furry bright orange tubular flowers ascend straight lofty stalks in spaced intervals. New growth emerges from the blossom’s center, crafting an unusual tiered effect, while freely branching square hairy stems sprout neatly paired triangular green leaves that are narrow and toothed.

Majestic as a container specimen or a mixed border focal point, this easy-to-grow South African mint family member favors a sunny well-drained spot with average moisture and a hard cut back after frosty winters.

Blooms August – October.

Size: 5-1/2'–6' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 8.
