Architectural alternative to Acanthus Mollis
Hi All, still planning my garden, feels like my head is going to burst after buying the allergy fighting garden book! I am however much better informed and am cracking on trying to choose the right plants for the right areas.
I have a corner at the back of the garden between the boundary wall and hornbeam hedge which gets very wet (will try and resolve it when digging up the garden) and is very shady.
I need something stunning for the corner and was drawn to Acanthus Mollis Rue Ledan but have just read a load of horror posts about how invasive it can be. Should I be brave and try it or can anyone recommend alternatives please? I'd ideally like something that is green and if flowering, white flowers or green flowers - def no yellow or red. We are coastal and from maps I think Zone 9 so relatively mild (though it doesn't feel like that today!)
