Compact clumps of dark foliage produce white to cream colored wispy bottle brush-like blooms.
Most goat's beard are large plants for the back of the border, but this is a dwarf species that fits right into the smaller garden scheme. It forms a low mound of light green, ferny foliage, bearing short spikes of creamy-white flowers in June, similar to astilbe. Excellent for edging, or in the rock garden. Remove faded flowers after blooming just to tidy the plants up for the rest of the season. Consider this also for growing in mixed tubs or containers, or perhaps beside a pond or stream. Easy and reliable, but not a good choice for dry shade situations.
