This Lion's Tail is in deep shade on one side and sunshine on the other. The
side that is in the shade is a bit wild and squirrely as the branches
attempt to find more light. The branches in the sun are more erect which is
Lion's Tail originates in South Africa so the more sun the better.
When grown in full sun the plants can reach six feet or more and are amazing
The flowers of the Lion's Tail dry very well and
can keep their color for two
years or more. They make interesting focal points for fresh wreaths.

great addition to our Crafter's Herb
Garden Six Pack for those who garden in zones 8 and up.
Even in zone 8 it will die back to the ground in the winter
which is a good time to cut it back.
