An invaluable and prized architectural plant for the mixed or herbaceous border with tall spikes of unusual flowers above striking pinnate leaves which are large, glossy green, with broad angular teeth. The tubular flowers, up to 5cms in size, are a combination of dusky purple and white bracts (petals) and are borne on the strong stalks that can reach 100cms over the flowering season from July-August.Acanthus Mollis is a vigorous clump forming herbaceous perennial and mixes well with other perennials so can be underplanted with taller spring bulbs, early flowering hardy geraniums and Nerines that will follow on in September. The genus name Acanthus comes from the Greek ?????? meaning 'thorn', which it has in abundance on the bracts.The stalks can be cut and dried and are great when used in floral displays but also look fabulous on frosty mornings so leave some in place to give winter depth and structure to your borders.Supplied as a single bulb.
Product Code: PACA101
Grows best in fertile soil in a partial shade/part sunny location, but prefers to be out of direct afternoon sun.Remove the dead foliage and old flower spikes in late winter or early spring to make way for the new seasons growth.
