This majestic free-flowering Dutch introduction claims one known parent, Acanthus mollis, and two speculative parents, either Acanthus spinosus or Acanthus hungaricus. Ideal for fresh and dried arrangements, up to a dozen mighty spires muscle upwards with a stylish long-lasting display of hooded pure white flowers nestled amid prickly purple bracts. Varnished, deeply scalloped dark green leaves define the valiant compact clump, which makes a breathtaking specimen in mixed borders. Remaining evergreen where winters are mild, ‘Morning’s Candle’ withstands heat, dry periods, rabbits and deer.
Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.
