Hello All ,

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my dilema. As soon as I read the name it was familiar. If anyone wants seed just let me know.

 Can anyone please tell me what this lovely plant is called. I grew it from a packet of free seeds and can't remember its name.

Can any body help!. I planted a nursery bought Acanthus Three years ago and it has never flowered. Lots of healthy foliage but never a hint of a flower. <span>I thought it may have been planted too deep so i lifted it last year and replanted it last year, still nothing. It is in moist, well drained fertile soil. In a sunny spot. The roots are about half an inch thick and and very strong and adventurous.
