Klip Dagga

Leonotis nepetifolia

A dramatic, easy-to-grow plant that’s sure to grab people’s attention! This is one of our favourite exotic flowers, with stakes of orange, furry flower tubes emerging from spiked green balls. This is a terrific background or accent plant, adding a bold splash of color anywhere you need it. Klip dagga has long been used in African traditional medicine as a treatment for fevers, headaches, malaria, asthma, and heart conditions. The dried foliage has also been used as a legal substitute to marijuana – smoked or used as a calming tea.
