Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A majestic herbaceous perennial with glossy architectural leaves and equally impressive flower spikes of purple and white, which appear in late spring and summer. Native to the Mediterranean, Acanthus spinosus is incredibly drought tolerant once established - perfect for hot dry borders! Bear's Breeches make excellent cut flowers, adding height to cottage garden borders or working equally well in exotic themed gardens. Height: 1.2m (4'). Spread: 1m (3').
