Small white-pink-purple flowers appear on dramatic tall spikes from November to January. Acanthus Mollis grows in full sun or shade and is almost indestructible. It prefers a deep, moist soil. Mulch well, and never allow the plant to dry out. Snail bait is necessary, particularly in wet weather. Remove dead leaves and spent flower stems to promote new growth.
