Acanthus are a genus made up of approximately 30 known species in the family, Acanthaceae. They are native to tropical climates and are found predominantly in both Asia and the Mediterranean. The generic title ‘Acanthus’ originates from the Greek word ‘Akanthos’, and was a plant used in an array of both Greek and Roman architecture.
Acanthus are herbaceous perennials with gorgeous and often variegated clumps of lobed foliage followed by vertical towers of funnel-shaped flowers. They are most commonly referred to as ‘Bears Breeches’. Acanthus should be planted in flower beds and borders within cottage and informal gardens, making delightful cut and dried flower arrangements too!
