One of our star plants which always provokes comment. This shrubby plant has striking whorls of bright orange tubular flowers supposedly reminiscent of a Lion's mane. Native to South Africa. Possibly ok outside in mild areas with well-drained soil in a warm spot with a thick dry mulch in winter. Otherwise overwinter frost free
