this looks lovely W. I must keep it on my mental "get it one day" list. Are they difficult to find at nurseries?
I remember my Dad referring to this plant.+

I got it as ordinary Acanthus Spinosus, Weeding and the next spring this is the colour it came up. It reverts to plain dark green later in the summer. Don't know if anybody else's does this?
