When you think of the fringes of a wooded area, think Aruncus. With delicate ivory plumes that make sterling cut flowers, Goat’s Beard is similar to Astilbe, although its sprightly form is more open. A natural beside a pool or stream, this trouble-free perennial favors moist soil, but can handle drier situations and some wind.
This spectacular North American perennial has a lot to toot its horn about: AGM recipient, bold bushy foundation and cut-flower-perfect feather-like plumes. A bee, butterfly and songbird haven, small starry cream-colored blooms populate arching, 12 in. tall, branched pyramidal panicles elegantly rising high above the long tripinnately compound green fronds, which emphasize pleated lanceolate leaflets, pointed tips and twice-serrated margins. Peerless as an easy-care stand-alone in naturalized plantings, Bride′s Feathers′s handsome upright clump shuns bunnies and deer plus appreciates evenly moist, organic-rich soil. Headline under tall trees, along partly shady streams or ponds and woodland peripheries with Asarum caudatum, Dicentra and Iris nearby.
Size: 4' 0" – 6' 0" high x 2-1/2' – 4-1/2' wide.
