An FYI,

This photo has two species of Leonotis.
The deep orange, larger-flowered Leonotis with the thin leaves is Leonotis leonurus.
The seed pod in her hand belongs to the Leonotis nepetifolia plant with the heart-shaped leaves (which can be seen in the background.) You can also see a few small, paler orange blooms on the Leonotis nepetifolia in the background. The calyces that hold these small flowers in Leonotis nepetifolia are clustered in tight spheres and have a long internode between them.
