Dividing and Transplanting Acanthus Mollis
I just discovered some acanthus mollis growing on the side of our house. I believe they have been dormant in the ground for years, as they just now sprang up after having a new, steady source of water.
Since the side of the house is 95% shade, I decided to make room for some along our front walkway where they will receive ample morning sunlight and dappled sun throughout the afternoon.
I dug them up and transplanted them this morning, and I included a picture so you can get an idea of their size. My question is: Is there a chance they will bloom this summer or fall, or will their small size and the fact that they were divided and transplanted affect their bloom cycle for this year?
