Acanthus spinosus ‘Beth Chatto's Form’
Smaller growing than the ubiquitous Acanthus mollis and a much more useful and useable plant with deeply divided leaves, dark green and glossy, making a telling mound. One metre tall, stiff strong spires of dusky mauve-pink foxglove-like flowers are produced during late spring and early summer. This is the best form of this variable plant we know. Sun or light shade. It has become a very important plant in our dry garden.100cm x 100cm.
