Acanthus mollis is a robust and fully hardy garden perennial. This popular species features large, jagged green foliage and produces magnificent, tall racemes of white flowers with mauve bracts from May to August. A fantastic addition to a large perennial border, Acanthus mollis is also happy in areas of dappled shade. Height and spread: 1.5m (5’). Supplied as large plug plants or in 9cm pots.

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.
