Acanthus spinosus is robust, architectural plant with exotic-looking foliage and erect spikes of equally exotic blooms. They may look tropical, but Acanthus is fully hardy in the UK, and enjoys sun or shade on a well-drained soil, is very drought tolerant and can tolerate exposed conditions.
Acanthus are also known as Bear's Breech, they make an excellent herbaceous perennial for mixed borders, growing up to 1.2m (3.9') and filling gaps easily. The spiny, purple-tinged flowers appear from late spring to summer. An easy to maintain border plant that comes back year after year. Height: 1.2m (3.9'). 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.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
