Product Details

Product Details

Stylized leaves of Acanthus (a perennial of the Mediterranean region also know as Bear's Breeches) have been used as architectural motifs since Greek and Roman times, perhaps to represent longevity and creativity. In nature, the dark green leaves of Acanthus are spiny, boldly lobed, and accompanied by showy, upright flower spikes. A striking plant in the garden, quite attractively represented here. Our urn looks like handcrafted brownstone but is made of lightweight, weather-resistant plastic with a hand-rubbed finish, so no two are alike. One drainage hole.

  • Measures 17″ wide x 18½″ tall, with an 8″ base
  • Holds approximately 30 quarts of soil (around 1 cubic foot).
  • Planter uses about 1 bag of our Fafard Container Mix. Click here to order.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Color is nothing like picture--looks like cheap plastic.

A viewer from Philadelphia

One of the reasons I was willing to spend so much on a plastic planter was the rich coloring of this urn in WFF's picture(s). The color in reality is actually a very light terra cotta (mixed with beige) and not the lovely, rich speckled patina in the picture. Also there are visible seams and a shine which make it look like cheap plastic. I would include a picture if the website currently allowed this. Very disappointed.
