Acanthus mollis - 5Ltr pot
Acanthis mollis is an extremely robust and attractive perennial with glossy, dark-green, lobed leaves and producing, in summer, a prickly upright stem of lipped, white flowers with purple bracts. The shiny leaves reflect light beautifully in a shaded position but Bear's Breeches will be equally at home in full sun between drought tolerant specimens. Leaves can be blighted by powdery mildew - affected growth is easy removed and quickly replaced. Site carefully as, if moved, tiny root fragments left behind will inevitably re-sprout. Acanthus leaf motifs were much favoured in Greco-Roman architecture and decor.
