Acanthus mollis(Bear's breeches)

Muncy, PA(Zone 5a)

I would like to know if the bear's breeches is hardy to zone 6. Also, would like to know if anyone has grown these.

Bay City, MI(Zone 6a)

my neighbor has it growing here in zone 6 michigan.
im very jealous!

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

It's hardy in my zone (I'm barely in the southern part of Zone 6), but I'm jealous, too - haven't had time to start growing any!

Here's a link to the entry in the plants database if you want to read a little more:

Port Huron, MI(Zone 5b)

sounds like a beautiful plant!!!!


Yes they are hardy in zone 6. We grow them and they will spread happily, if you try to move them they will still appear in their original place so now we just leave them be. Its a great one for the wild garden.
