Description Fine Print
 
Whitewater' is a vigorous, variegated Acanthus with striking, bold leaves with white margins and splashing. Makes a large clump with 4 to 5 foot tall ornamental flower stalks of pink and cream in summer. This was bred with A. 'Summer Beauty' for vigour, more hardiness, and heat and humidity tolerance. The result is a much stronger cultivar than 'Tasmanian Angel'. A mature clump of this would be downright stunning -- I think I'm starting to lust for this plant!
