Also known as Lions Tail is a broadleaf evergreen shrub that is a native of South Africa.  

Lion’s Tail is an evergreen shrub growing from1.5 - 2 metres tall and about 1 metre wide. The dark green leaves are held in opposite positions on the square stem with the leaves decreasing in size from the base to the top which are aromatic when crushed. The long tubular flowers are a beautiful fuzzy orange and they are grouped in tiered whorls which go around the stem, rising up the plant to above the foliage in attractive clusters. They are highly ornamental and bloom in summer or throughout the year in warm climates. Prefers a full sun position although it will cope with some shade, but we find drainage is important as they definitely do not like wet feet.  Can be pruned after flowering to keep bushy.  

Height 1.5m x 1.5m Wide


Plant size: 3.5 Litre pot
