Carolina Gardening: donnacreation picture (Acanthus frustration)
Subject: Acanthus frustration
Forum: Carolina Gardening
I have planted lots of acanthus in varying degrees of filtered shade, but none of them are thriving. I dug up three that were robust when I bought them a few years ago and moved them to a planter. So far they don't seem to like the move. I've routinely watered some, while neglecting others, yet they all look the same - exhausted and puny. Are our summers too hot for them to thrive? Ditto for calla lilies.
