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

Your leaves are really serrated compared to A. mollis


so it fits the leaves of A. spinosus

And you have loads of blooms...Beautiful! Green Grin! 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.
