A long blooming shrub, leonotis leonurus, or Lion's Tail as it is commonly called, is a plant that I have always admired in other people's gardens, but only got around to finding a spot for it in my garden last year. I have two of them in SJC, this one that blooms all summer and fall, and another that is in a corner and has yet to bloom. I suspect that that latter is not getting enough sun. It is a very drought tolerant plant that is a member of the mint family, but from my observations it is a more civilized family member that stays where put!
