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.
