Acanthus ‘Whitewater’

This vigorous, variegated Acanthus has striking, bold leaves with deeply cut white margins and splashing on the leaves. It forms a large clump with 4' tall showy flower stalks with pink and cream flowers in summer. This was bred with Acanthus 'Summer Beauty' for vigor, more hardiness, and heat and humidity tolerance.

How Different?

Much more vigorous than 'Tasmanian Angel' – longer leaves, more cut, more evergreen, and longer petioles.

Landscape Value

Great bold accent in the shade garden, perennial border or areas that are difficult to grow in, as this is a tough plant. Flower stalks are good for cutting.

6 – 8 weeks

Much more vigorous than 'Tasmanian Angel'. Flower stalks are good for cutting. Plants often emerge in spring with white leaves.
