Aruncus Fairy Hair, Goat’s Beard
Fairy Hair Goatsbeard, Aruncus, is a perfect size for tucking into places in your shade garden. Sprays of creamy, triangular flower plumes that age to a darker color appear in summer. Ferny foliage adds a whimsical touch to the garden. Although the foliage is incredibly dissected, it produces a thick, substantial clump for a solid presence. Goats Beard is similar in appearance to Astilbe in the garden, but it is more drought tolerant.
Goat’s Beard is naturally at home in the shady moist woodland areas. Highly valued as a majestic specimen or for a ferny hedge for the back of the shade border, Goat’s Beard also mixes well with other shade loving perennials. Where it is placed should be well thought out, as it does not liked to be moved.

For best results keep well watered when setting up buds and blooming. It benefits from deep soakings during dry spells.
