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'–4' high x 2'–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 7.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
