Leonotis leonurus

Leonotis leonurus is also known as lion’s tail or wild dagga. It’s native to South Africa and is known for its medicinal and mild psychoactive properties. It seems like I mostly see it after it has bloomed and the heads have dried to a brittle brown. This one, however, was still in flower, its bright orange flowers contrasting with the green of the rest of the plant.
