Aruncus ‘Horatio’
at Digging Dog

Aruncus  Horatio

June–July.

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.

Steeped in elegance, yet remarkably steadfast, this exquisite perennial was bred by noted German nurseryman, Ernest Pagels. ‘Horatio’ is a meticulously crafted cross between Aruncus aethusifolius and Aruncus dioicus, prized for its unique sparkling plumes of tiny cream-colored blooms, which splay out in a horizontal fashion from bronze-tinted upright stems. Fresh green fernlike foliage forms a bushy base beneath the airy star-shaped flowers.

Size: 3' 0"–3-1/2' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I placed a large order & am very pleased with the experience. I chose Digging Dog because they had cultivars that I couldn't find elsewhere & were grown neonic-free. All the plants I received were strong & well-rooted. I will happily order from them again.”
