also known as lion’s tail is a plant species in the Lamiaceae (mint) family. The plant is a broadleaf evergreen large shrub native to South Africa andsouthern Africa, where it is very common. The main active component of Leonotis leonurus is leonurine.
The shrub grows 3 to 6 ft (1 to 2 m) tall by 1.5 to 3.5 feet (0.46 to 1.07 m) wide. The medium-dark green 2–4 inches (5.1–10.2 cm) long leaves are aromatic when crushed. The plant has tubular orange flowers in tiered whorls, typical to the mint family, that encircle the square stems.
