Description
Given plenty of space, this majestic, architectural perennial makes a superb specimen plant. The glossy, deeply serrated foliage forms an attractive spreading clump that remains semi-evergreen in mild areas. From May to August, Acanthus mollis produces vertical spires of white flowers, which peep from beneath dark purple hoods. Grow this hardy perennial in a sunny or lightly shaded spot where it can spread to form a spectacular feature plant. Height: 1.5m (59"). Spread: 1m (39").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
