Oyster Plant (Acanthus mollis)

The Oyster Plant (Acanthus mollis) , is a fast growing, hardy evergreen plant that features dark glossy green foliage. Creating a striking accent in the garden or pot with the strong architectural shapes of the leaves and beautiful tall flower spikes of white and purple.

Oyster Plants are extremely tough and will cope equally well in a dry shade position or full sun. Frost tolerant, they will grow best in a moist soil with a good layer of mulch, but plants will also survive dry periods with no extra assistance. Protect from snails.


*As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary slightly.

*Larger pot sizes (Size 4 and above) are ONLY available for Local Pickup or Local Delivery within 5km of our stores.
