This Acanthus sp. plant was another fantastic find while touring the UBC Physic Garden. The Royal Horticultural Society has given Bear’s Breeches its Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

The BBC Plant Finder likes it to !

“A statuesque architectural plant, with handsome dark green leaves whose stylized shapes form the decorative detail on Corinthian columns, bringing a strong hint of classical elegance to the garden.”
