Review:

I have to smile when I read all these comments on this wild dagga plant. For us living here we see it as a weed. Apparently bought into the island around the 50's or 60's from South Africa by a local man Nicknamed "Nargee" These plants are now called "nargee weed" back here since they have taken over certain areas of the island.

What are the pros? Really tall!

What are the cons? Not Wild Dagga

Review:

So, I didn't really look at the latin name, I just bought, not that I'm sorry, but it wasn't the bright orange big flowered thing I was expecting. This is Klip Dagga, reported to be more potent if you're into that, and it seems a bit less robust, but it's 8 feet tall in the north and stands itself up despite wind. I'm happy. But if you're set on Wild Dagga, you won't be.

What are the pros? Wild like a lion

Review:

I started seeds in May and they grew slowly at first and didn't make flowers until July. The hummingbirds do seem to like them, as well as a few high altitude ants and gnats. They are the most unusual looking plants with stickery pods that remind me of the datura. Now at the middle of August they are nearly 12 feet tall. The flowers are the same pale orange as in the picture.

Review:

I first saw this amazing plant at the San Diego Zoo. After finding it on here, I realize why they had it everywhere. (the name) Once planted, it only took about a week for the seeds to emerge from the soil. From there, this plant grew extremely fast. The flowers last from Spring to Fall here and produce so many lion-tail shaped flower heads and branches that I have to clip back every 3 months to keep it from taking over my patio. It also self-sows in moist soil. I haven't used it for any medicinal purposes yet and I haven't seen it attract any hummingbirds, bees, or butterflies, but it is too amazing regardless. Make sure you plant it in a location where it has some room to grow as it will quickly become a small tree. My main plant is about 7' tall right now. This is a conversation starter in the garden from its unique shaped flower pods.
