I have this plant, the shape of the plant and the leaves are beautiful, but I get no flowers. What am I missing ?

Hi, Vera,
What type of site is it planted? Though shade tolerant, Acanthus performs best with full sun. Also, is the soil clay? Acanthus does not like clay. You can use a feed that encourages flowering - you need one high in phosphorus - the nutrient responsible for promoting flower production in plants.
All the best,
Kathy C
