Leonotis Leonorus (Stair-Case Plant)
We are one of the handful of growers of this rare and unusual plant. Sometimes known as The Stair-Case Plant, it has very striking and unusual Orange flowers. It is listed as a perennial ideal for back of borders. But we feel that it is not quite as hardy and so we do not guarantee it. We are awaiting feed-back from customers to see if it re-grows. Flowering mid to late summer and growing up to 9 feet. We think that they may respond a little too well to “pinching out” as the plant then ascended to double its expected height and measured 12 feet by the end of the summer. Very insect friendly.
