Aruncus dioicus Kneiffii

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 dioicus ‘Kneiffii’ full sun  partial shade

While the species is a larger perennial hailing from Missouri, this compact, daintier 1889 version sprouts Japanese Maple-like leaves, finely hewn with thread-like segments. Sheer cream-colored plumes of minute starry blooms twinkle above the ultra-fine deep green hummock. Ideal as a cut flower, fresh or dried, and for gardens short on space, ‘Kneiffii’ can be massed along streams or ponds and in moist shady borders or woodland gardens.

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