Auralie, I have Acanthus growing in my garden.   I purchased it from Blue 
Bird Nursery in Feb at the ISU Shade Tree Short Course one year.   I then 
planted it in the garden in the spring.   The following spring it did not come 
up.   In moving plants around I planted a Peony in that spot and the 
following spring, 2011, the Acanthus come up under and around the Peony and 
bloomed.   That fall I dug both up and separated the plants.   This year the 
Acanthus came up in its new location and bloomed but the bloom was not as nice as 
it was under the Peony growth which I am attributing to the extreme drought 
we experienced.   Also, I did not get all the roots when I moved it so again 
had some growth near the Peony.   I love the foliage and the bloom.
