Aruncus 'Dioicus' Goats Beard
Feathery plumes of white flowers rise from pinnately compound leaves. Goat's Beard (Aruncus dioicus) is a large shrub-like perennial that spreads slowly by rhizomes to form attractive patches. An excellent choice for a background plant in woodland settings or shade gardens, it can be planted in sunny areas, as well, provided there is good moisture. Host plant to the Dusky Azure butterfly.
