Attract hummingbirds with this otherworldly plant.
A fast-growing tropical annual, Klip Dagga has a playfully strange, Seussian sort of beauty–and this playfulness is magnified by the swooping, darting hummingbirds that come to drink its nectar. Despite its origins, Klip Dagga is very adaptable: It thrives in a range of soils and conditions–even in containers–and reaches up to 10 feet tall! It's fuzzy, orange, tubular flowers emerge from round masses of pincushion-like bracts that appear intermittently along its ridged, green stems. All parts of this plant have been used in traditional medicines for the treatment of various ailments.
