Thanks to Herman van Beusekom of the Netherlands for sharing this great new bear's breech which he named Acanthus 'Rue Ledan'. This is one of the few Acanthus mollis selections 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).
