This vigorous, variegated Acanthus has striking, bold leaves with deeply cut white margins and splashing (how appropriate!) Makes a large clump with 4' to 5' tall ornamental flower stalks of pink and cream in summer. This was bred with A. 'Summer Beauty' for vigor, more hardiness, and heat and humidity tolerance. Worth jumping in for!

This vigorous, variegated Acanthus has striking, bold leaves with white margins and splashing. Makes a large clump with 4 to 5 foot tall ornamental flower stalks of pink and cream in summer. This was bred with A. 'Summer Beauty' for vigour, more hardiness, and heat and humidity tolerance. The result is a much stronger cultivar than 'Tasmanian Angel'. A mature clump of this would be downright stunning -- I think I'm starting to lust for this plant!.

Acanthus (of Corinthian pillars) is ALWAYS an eye-catcher, but with its bright splashes of white on huge leaves, this is particularly so... a superb 2-3' accent w/ 3-5' stalks of showy pink-cream summer flowers. PSh-Sh/M PPAF
