Aruncus dioicus
Aruncus dioicus
Common Name: goat's beard, bride's feathers

A fantastic native with large, fine-textured feathery blooms in late Spring. Though closely related to Spiraea, goat's beard more closely resembles a giant Astilbe. When happy, Aruncus can be a formidable garden plant, reaching a spread of 6 feet or more. It is lovely when used at woods edge and it can provide a dense screen beneath a high canopy.

Height: 4-6 Feet
Spread: 6 Feet
USDA Hardiness Zone: 5-9
