Depends on where you have them @SylviaDavies If they're in full sun they can get really tall up to 1.5m

They can be quite a thug and pop up a new plant from any roots left behind. In fact they can be quite be quite thuggish wherever they are and take over the borders 😂 Also quite prone to powdery mildew @SylviaDavies They are a lovely architectural plant but can be a pain

Well I never. #Acanthus #spinosus has 2 flower buds after me saying to @jeatacake and @broughgardens that I'd have to wait another year 💚💚💚

Had a good look around the leaves on the other 2 and nothing yet @jeatacake I am so excited by this, it's a baby off my original mother plant that I couldn't dig out of my old garden

If the rain has stopped when I get home from work, then I'll definitely be checking to see if mine is flowering!

#acanthus-mollis Looks like we've got some good growth coming this year if you can see it past the #forgetmenots. Poor thing had lived in a pot for a few years during the house moves

Yes if not kept in check. Got a picture in my garden two houses ago of it taking over. I will dig out a picture of it. This is a side shoot of the original ☺
