|The leaves appear to be of Acanthus spinosus not A. mollis.|

|I am so inept at seeing any difference between them ,but will accept your identification.|

|Your leaves are really serrated compared to A. mollis|
so it fits the leaves of A. spinosus

|WOW Thanks. I see the difference now.|

|And you have loads of blooms...Beautiful! A. mollis has never bloomed for me, perhaps due to late frosts.|
How much sun does your Acanthus get Jo Ann? My A. spinosus has hardly increased in 3 years and takes forever to emerge.

|Ours is a transplant from DD's old house and is really in her garden by the front door. |
It reseeds or makes plantlets somehow. It gets full sun nearly all day.
It also come up later.
