When you think of a woodland setting, think
Aruncus. With elegant, feathery ivory
plumes, Goat’s Beard is similar to and combines
well with Astilbe, although it is airier in form. A
terrific understory for tall canopies of Styrax japonicus
or Maples, it thrives in moist soil, and is a natural
beside a pool or stream. Place Aruncus where you
can view it from the south, to take advantage of its
tendency to lean toward the sun. It’s a popular cut flower.
Topped by creamy white plumes of minute star-like flowers, fine ultra-chiseled foliage and red-tinged stems shape a tidy dwarf habit that works well as a ground cover around flat stones and rocks. This small gem can also be tucked into the front of the border with broad-leafed Epimediums nearby.
Size: 8" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Aruncus aethusifolius (P-0995)
