A perennial shrub, Leonotis leonurus grows to a height of approximately 1.5 metres with a spread of 1 metre. Beautiful flower spikes are produced in spring/summer with whorls of orange individual flowers containing a bitter-sweet nectar, the flowers being resinous. Also called ‘Wild Dagga’.

Traditionally this species has been used as a smoking herb. It is thought to contain compounds similar in structure and effect to THC from Cannabis. A blend of both the flowers and leaves is regarded as a good smoking blend.
