An unusual and quite rare form of 'bear's breeches' with spires of pure white flowers over large, dark green and glossy foliage from mid- to late-summer, say June to September.

Plant Acanthus 'Rue Ledan' in the middle to the rear of the border, and it will grow into a stately plant that will readily provide a focal point in any sunny or lightly shaded part of the garden. Deep and fertile soils will definitely give the best results, so if in doubt, dig in when well-rotted manure when planting and also consider mulching with well-rotted manure or garden compost in the winter. This will improve the structure, nutrient status and moisture retention capcity of the soil, as well as being good exercise!

Easy to grow, robust and fully hardy. H: up to 120cm
