Thanks …, thanks for sharing this plant. A new look of Solanaceae plant, to me.


Acanthus species, possibly A. montanus.


Yes it is Acanthus montanus (Nees) T.And., native of Africa and Mediterranean regions and introduced into many Asian countries. It is ornamental and also has several medicinal properties.


Looks much different from images of Acanthus montanus posted by … & identified by …

Plant appears to be a shrub, A. ilicifolius more likely


Inflorescence looks much different from Acanthus ilicifolius L.

It is closer to images at Acanthus spinosus
