didnt see your question.
dont grow Acanthus but they do grow well down here.
friend does too...quite a clump or two.
how long ago did you plant it? You may be being a little impatient.
As I understand it,,they can be fickle. They form a tap root....I think; I will need fo check on that........and they flower well one summer and in another not. dont think they flower well until they are established, i.e. putting that tap root down.
I have never grown it but it does look impressive as a large clump so maybe I will look to plant it somewhere but it does need space.
lovely day. Not long in. ,suddenly looked like rain so rushed around cutting grass and just beat a shower......yippee! I won
