Aruncus dioicus

Goat's Beard

♦ Zones:  4 - 8     Height:  48 - 60"     Exposure:  Full Sun to Part Shade ♦

This species of goat's beard is a Missouri native plant which occurs in moist woodlands and along bluffs in the central and southeast part of the State. A tall, erect, bushy, clump-forming plant which features pinnately compound, dark green foliage and showy, plume-like spikes of tiny, cream colored flowers which rise well above the foliage in early to mid summer, creating a bold effect. This rose family member is somewhat similar in appearance to astilbe. Dioecious (separate male and female plants) as the species name suggests. Plants with male flowers produce a showier bloom than plants with female flowers.  Easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers part shade, particularly in the southern part of its growing range and moist, fertile soils.  Excellent background plant for shady, moist spots in the border or in a woodland, wild or native plant garden. Plant as a specimen or in groups along streams or water gardens.
