A spectacular Bear's Breeches with exquisite fine leaves and in summer 2' tall, 5" wide huge chalice-like blooms. Light yellow and lavender flowers appear in June-July. Full sun in well drained good soil. Occasional summer water though tolerant of drought. The flowers are like no other and the plant should be sited in a forward or conspicuous position. Deciduous in winter. Good looking leaves all season. Give it room to spread. The species is also known as Acanthus dioscoridis var. perringii. We originally received it as A. syriacus. It is native to the high mountains of Turkey, Iraq, and Iran.
