Bought as a ‘Dragon Plant’ this plant grows to about 4 ft high with holly-like leaves which are seriously barbed. Blooms Jan – March, upright flower heads from ends of branches, along branches and even from the main stems. A challenge to handle.

    Maybe a species in the Acanthus genus, this could be A. montanus? Common names include moutain, Bear’s breech etc… thistle Check it out and see if you a match. Best wishes!
