Acanthus (Bear's Breeches)
Stately plants draped in large, handsome, glossy foliage and topped with magnificent towering flower spikes. The spikes display showy mauve bracts which reveal delicate white-petaled flowers. The impressively long, deep-green leaves are cut into irregular-edged, finger-like sections.
Prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Protect crowns in first winter after planting.
Good specimen plants for the border or as a solitary feature.
