Family: Lamiaceae

This is an erect shrub with unusual fuzzy orange tubular flowers arranged in whorls, blooming from late spring through fall. Grows 4 to 6 feet tall, but may be pruned after flowering to form a more dense and compact plant. It is striking in bloom, and looks good in a mass planting with other flowering shrubs. Plant in full sun in well-draining soil. It is drought tolerant and hardy to the low 20's, resprouting from hardened wood if frozen back. Useful in flower arrangements (burn stem bottoms to seal). Butterfly and hummingbird attractant. Native to South Africa. USDA zones 8 -11.
