Lion’s Mane Takes the Heat

Leonotus leourus
September is a tough month for plants here in San Diego. The end of summer brings lots of heat and sun, it hasn’t rained in six months, and we’re in the midst of a drought so I water only sparingly. As a result, there’s just a few plants that actually look good this time of year and Leonotus leourus or Lion’s Mane happens to be one of them. It’s a native of Southern Africa and does quite well here in our very similar climate with no care at all. Hummingbirds seem to love it too.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
