I think it should be listed under 'Leonotis leonurus'

Actually this Leonotis is L. nepetifolia var. nepetifolia 'Staircase' which is described as growwing 6 to 10 ft tall (from T & M Seeds), a half hardy annual. My experience with L. leonurus is only 3 to 3.5 ft tall, more flowers and not available as seed (got from Logee's - perennial plants only).

Yes, photo taken on a quite sunny afternoon last fall.
Thanks.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Thanks! Maybe it would be good to create that entry in the database? Six foot tall, that is some plant!
