Acanthus sennii

Regular price €9,00

Tax included.

one of those plants that everybody questions When they see it growing in a garden, 

One of only a small few cultivated Ethiopian plants avaiilable, 

Stunning Red flowers late in the year atop, the beautiful, almost plastic looking spiny foliage,

Regarded as Semi hardy -2 to -4 Celsius, 
I had my own motherplant take a battering down to -6 in a shady spot  a few years ago and is bounced back nicely though rather later than normal, 
It is often recommended to grow the plant in a pot for several years before planting it out, enabling the development of a robust rhizome.
A well-drained, very sunny warm position is needed, and a mulch over the rhizome may be wise in colder areas.
