Acanthus mollis ‘Rue Ledan’ full sun  partial shade  new plant

A lustrous mound of large, deeply lobed green leaves entertains majestic straight-up silvery green spires, composed of big pure white flowers that protrude from prominent canopy-like green bracts. With elegance and architecture to spare, this rarely offered perennial can be utilized as a statuesque pathway sentinel or as a compelling specimen in a mixed border. ‘Rue Ledan’ tolerates shade, wards off mildew and stays fresh in a cut arrangement for nearly 2 weeks.

Blooms June–July

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 2' 0"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 7.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
