Leonotis ocymifolia var. raineriana – Wilde Dagga (seed)
A perennial shrub, growing to a height of 2-3 metres and with a 1 metre spread. Beautiful flower spikes are produced in autumn/spring with whorls of orange individual flowers containing a bitter-sweet nectar, the flowers being resinous. Also called ‘Wilde Dagga’. Similar to L. nepetaefolia in flower structure but without the spiky flower balls.
Used as a Wilde Dagga in parts of Africa.
Care and Cultivation Plant seeds just under the surface of a well drained mix and keep warm and in full sun if possible, keeping moist until germination in 2-4 weeks. Pot on when crowding begins.
Native to South Africa, it prefers a light to medium, well drained soil in an open sunny position. Drought tolerant but responds well to ample water over the warmer months.
