Aruncus dioicus earns its common names, Goat's Beard and Bride's Feathers, with its fluffy plumes of creamy white flowers in summer. It is reminiscent of Astilbe. After blooming, the seed heads of the female flowers are a treat for small birds.
Native to many parts of the U.S., Aruncus dioicus Goat's Beard naturally grows in moist woodlands. In a garden setting, it appreciates consistent moisture and organically rich soil.
Aruncus dioicus Goat's Beard is perfect for woodland gardens, cottage gardens, mass plantings, and conservation projects.
