Thanks to Herman van Beusekom of the Netherlands for sharing this great new acanthus. This is the only selection of Acanthus mollis that has grown well in our hot, humid summers. The cutleaf, shiny, dark green foliage composes a large specimen clump to 3' in width. In June, the tropical-looking deer-resistant clump is topped with 3' tall spikes of pure white flowers (compared with the normal purple hood over each flower). For excitement value, everyone should have a few white hoods in their garden.

(aka RUE LEDAN) Rare white flowered form of this bold, architectural perennial; robust clumps of big leaves to 3’ across and very erect flowering stems (so attractive they graced classic Greek columns!) July Oct. Deep rich, well drained moist soil – take some sun with lots of water, also takes deep shade...cultivating around this plant may result in more plants than you wanted! Tough, statement plant! USDA Z7
