Acanthus spinosus is an herbaceous perennial. There are other species but this is my favourite as I prefer it's more dissected, thistle-like leaves. A mature clump in flower is an impressive site. Scroll down this board for further details.
Angelica sylvestris Ebony Superior By far the darkest of the Angelica's we have trialed here, this perennial forms a rosette of near black delicately divided foliage. During early Summer, dark flower stems carry broad umbels of purple buds, which open to soft pink. A dramatic plant, much loved by Diggers staff, as it flowered in our trial gardens. Perfect to plant amongst feathery grasses and hazy perennials.
