Leonotis nepetifolia


Leonurus nepetifolia can speak very nicely for itself, it needs no help from me.  Of course it can’t actually hold an intelligent conversation, that would be asking a little too much.  However, through the understated discipline of mime it eloquently communicates its awesome exotic beauty.

  1. I do like a plant that’s potentially taller than I – we need something to look up to once in a while. Just wondering, though, do you treat it as a tender perennial and whip it (kinkily) into the greenhouse for the winter or grow from seed every year? I had some of its wild relative a few years ago but, come late autumn, it just looked daggers at me and keeled over forever. Never been able to find it (klip or wild) ever since.

  2. Lovely, but I have a few problems with tall plants here, no reason to explain why this house has a threshing barn, the wind blows through quite nicely.
