Aruncus

Goat's Beard

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.

Aruncus aethusifolius full sun  partial shade

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.
