Sorry, no etymologies found.
This kid just keeps on growing, even though we know little about him other than his name, Leo, short for Leonotis leonurus Added: this is actually L. nepetifolia.
Shown in bloom, the moved to the garage deck stairway, Leonotis leonurus ‘Staircase’.
Thanks Diana, I was just doing some more research on Leo and believe that the plant I have is not L. leonurus as the seed packet claimed, but L. nepetifolia ‘Staircase’ which grows 10 to 12 feet tall.
The blackberry lily is stunning, but what takes me away is your Leonitis leonurus… vibrant orange… and just the sound of its name is musical.
The leaves are not the narrow ones of L. leonurus, but rather larger like a Nepeta.
Your Leonotis does look like ‘nepetifolia’ ~ I grew both it and ‘leonurus’ last season.
I definitely ordered the shorter leonurus but ended up with the gigantic nepetifolia.
Leo being the seed grown Leonotis nepetifolia ‘Staircase’, supposedly the shorter L. leonurus until a case of false identy was discovered.
According to the DA, ingredients include: canavalia rosea, clematis vitalba, nelumbo nucifera, pedicularis grand folia, heimia salicifolia, leonurus sibiricus, ledum palustre, blue lotus, baybean and a number of other herbs.
