Leonotis ocymifolia, the broad-leaved minaret flower shares its Afrikaans common name wildedagga with its relative, L. leonurus,
The plant is an erect shrub growing to heights around 2 m. The toothed, oval leaves are stalked.
The velvety, orange flowers grow in whorls on erect stems. Both the calyx and corolla are two-lipped. Flowering happens from midsummer to early autumn (Manning, 2009).
