Acanthus spinosus

Spiny bear's breeches

Two-lipped white flowers with purplish bracts bloom on hefty spikes above dark glossy green mounded foliage from late spring to mid summer. This 3-4' tall bear's breeches offers unique architectural form which more than makes up for the spine-tipped leaves and spiny flower bracts that are a little tricky to handle. Prefers some afternoon shade.
