Leonotis ocymifolis (formerly Leonotis leonorus Lion's Tail


A perfect Lion's Tail flower

Lion's Tail is a striking, orange, autumn blooming perennial that is suitable for gardens in Zones 7  and up. It is particularly gorgeous when planted in front of Mexican Bush Sage, Salvia leucantha. The flowers of the Lion's Tail dry very well and can keep their color for two years or more. For a fragrant Lion's Tail, try Mint Scented Lion's Tail!

Lion's Tail makes a great addition to our Crafter's Herb Garden Six Pack.
