Acanthus has put on a bit of growth these last 6 months. This is a side shoot off one I left behind at a previous house and had been confined to a pot for 2 years. Wonder if it will put up some flowers next year ?

Had mine two years, still not flowered yet. Any idea how long they take?

Didn't think they took that long @Garyg They like full sun and seemed to grow best for me at a previous garden in poor soil

Fab! 👍🏼looks lovely and healthy and How funny...I have one behind a tree which obviously doesn't do well, and I noticed today it's grown loads...very strange! 🤔 I will have to move it, it has flowered only once 😁

If you move it @rachelbrooks it will probably still sprout again in the original position. Only needs a tiny bit of root left behind 😉
