The reason we offer so many plants in the Acanthus Family is because they are such outstanding performers during hot summers. A most unique member of this group of plants is the White Shrimp Plant. It is constantly in flower with its tall candles or white towers of bracts with small lavender flowers peering out. It's these little caches of nectar that draw in the hummingbirds. Many people comment on the interesting green net-like veins that really stand out on the white bracts. Also called Squirrel Tail and Paper Plume, White Shrimp Plant is heat tough, easy and something different for flower beds and containers.
