Acanthus Mollis_may_2008_-_29.jpg (Acanthus mollis)

This seems to have had a mammoth growth again all of a sudden. Will have to cut back harsher next year.

I think this picture shows Acanthus spinosus, not Acanthus mollis. They are commonly confused, and there are hybrids, I believe. The test is, do the leaves feel prickly? (If so, then 'spinosus). If the leaves are softer and look rounder, then 'mollis' (latin for 'soft').
