We feel this import by the late Oregon plantsman Chet Tompkins from a gardener in China is the finest acanthus on the market. Where Acanthus mollis fails miserably, Acanthus 'Summer Beauty', a hybrid (probably Acanthus mollis x Acanthus hungaricus), grows well in our hot summers. The 4-6' wide clump of giant, glossy, dark green foliage is much more cutleaf than Acanthus mollis. In summer, the tropical-looking, deer-resistant clumps are topped with 6' tall spikes of white flowers surrounded by wonderful purple calyces...absolutely superb, an industry standard!
