Lion's Tail

I recently planted a lion's tail plant in my garden to provide late summer/fall color. I love the flower: furry and orange. Great for a shock of color in my border. The progression of the bloom is interesting to watch. First the flower ball appears. It is very geometrical and interesting. Soon, small orange dots appear. Finally, like a firework explosion on the fourth of July, the furry "tails" appear. Ka-Boom!

Bonus: Once established, low water user.

Very interesting and lovely colors. Never heard of this plant. They do look like fireworks.
