ACANTHUS MOLLIS

BEARS BREECH

Intriguing tropical effect from large lush foliage. Grow for foliage alone or enjoy spikes of whitish-lilac flowers. Bear's breeches makes a bold architectural statement with its large, spiny leaves, which served as the pattern for the design on Greek Corinthian columns. Spreads rapidly. This herbaceous perennial is useful in borders or as background planting. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring. Easy Care - Deer Resistant
