Leonotis Leonurus Alba Also known as: White Lion's Tail /Ear, Wild Dagga ('wild cannabis')
This upright shrub from South Africa has eye-catching white flowers and makes for a wonderful garden focal point. It's a rather rare variety and hard to find. The flowers can also be stunning in a flower arrangement. The shrub grows 3 to 6 ft tall by 1.5 to 3.5 feet wide. The medium-dark green 2–4 inches long leaves are aromatic when crushed. The plant has tubular white flowers in tiered whorls, typical to the mint family, that encircle the square stems. They rise above the foliage mass during the summer season, with flowering continuing into winter in warmer climates.
It is known for its medicinal and mild psychoactive properties. The main psychoactive component of Leonotis leonurus is leonurine. The dried leaves and flowers have a mild calming effect when smoked, except that it has a much less potent high. Traditionally it is a widely used medicine for treating fevers, headaches, coughs, dysentery, snake bites, the relief of hemorrhoids, to relieve stomach ache and as a purgative. The picked and dried leaves are commonly brewed as a tea. It is also used as a charm to keep snakes away. It is a moderate drought tolerant plant, and a nectar source for hummingbirds and butterflies in landscape settings. Winter hardy to USDA Zones 8-11. In cooler climates it is used as an annual and winter conservatory plant. It is container suitable and will bloom just fine in a pot.
