-16% Bears Breeches (Acanthus Mollis) 10 seeds (#1418)

This interesting Old World perennial has a coarse upright habit that adds texture to sunny gardens. Bear's breeches is quite hardy and summer-blooming. It is native to regions in southwestern Europe, though it has been in cultivation for a long time.
The long, sharply lobed, coarse leaves of bear’s breeches are deep green and form large, showy rosettes. In summer, tall, upright spikes of two-lipped, tubular maroon and white flowers are produced. Once spent, the old blooms should be cut back to make best of the attractive semi-evergreen foliage.
Grow this stately plant in full to partial sun and fertile soil with good drainage. It is an old-fashioned garden favorite that’s commonly planted in historic gardens across Europe. Both the foliage and flowers offer striking interest, and its tall flower stems can be cut for floral arrangements.
