Acanthus mollis is drought tolerant and reproduced just like comfry by root clump division. It is as high in protein as alfalfa and very shade tolorent. Seeds have herbicide in them leaves my damage plants too. No alcaloid content found in leaves. No adverse affects were found when fed the cattle. It is not necessary to water when transplanting as long as the ground is a bit moist.

The Acanthus I planted got eaten by grasshoppers like almost everything else. At least grasshoppers don't eat people. I'd like to see what toxins are in this plant before I feed it to my animals. some things can be boiled if you have free wood.
