Variegated Acanthus mollis ‘Tasmanian Angel’


Acanthus mollis ‘Tasmanian Angel’ is an unusual and spectacularly variegated foliage plant to  create a bright feature in your shade garden.  This variegated form of the Acanthus (Bear’s Breeches) displays a pale yellow and green leaf emerging in early spring; the dramatic variegation is emphasized as the yellow pales to ivory white, and the green deepens to a rich lustrous green.  The leaf form also adds to the drama, with it’s deeply scalloped edge and large scale when mature.  A mature plant will send up a spike of pale pink and white flowers up to 5′ tall.

Tasmanian Angel will make a bold clump about 3′ x 3′ if you provide a deep rich soil in part sun to shade in zones 7 – 10 .    Deer resistant.

Other varieties of the Bear’s Breeches available at Peacock Horticultural Nursery include Acanathus mollis ‘Hollard’s Gold’ with golden leaves.
