Quick to grow and establish into lush mounding, soft green foliage and airy plumes in rich, creamy shades. A rare find well worth a grow.
The stunning flowers are great in arrangements and can be dried (will bronze). It flowers a little later than A. diocus ‘Zweiweltenkind’.

The large, fern like, dark green leaves form a lovely, lush, dense mound. The foliage sticks around for a good while after the flowers are finished, forming a lovely backdrop for summer bloomers. The new leaves have a bronze blush and they turn yellow as the plant goes into dormancy.

Aruncus, or Goats Beard don’t like to dry out and will flourish in moist shade, but with sufficient moisture will grow in sun in cool climates. A great choice for boggy soils or by ponds, it needs to be watered over summer if it is in the garden or the leaves may go brown. Heavy clay soils are not a problem. You could add a little mulch in summer to help retain moisture around the roots.

Similar to Astilbe, Aruncus grow best in part shade, filtered light or morning sun positions – think Hostas, Hellebores and ferns. While they will grow in full shade, they won’t flower to their best and tend to stretch. In sunny positions you will need to ensure they have adequate moisture, or they may become straggly and will struggle to bloom.

It is colloquially known as Goat’s Beard (it’s botanical name, Aruncus means Goat’s Beard in Greek) or Bride’s Feathers.
