Goat's Beard

Aruncus dioicus 'Kneiffii'

This native to North America plant, exhibits upright white wispy blooms on deeply cut, thread-like foliage.

This selection of Goat's Beard is ideal for the smaller garden, where the usual giant form would be too large. Plants form a medium-sized mound of finely-cut green leaves, similar to a Japanese Maple. Creamy-white plumes of flowers appear in early summer, which are useful for cutting and even drying. Nice in the border or in tubs, and especially at home beside a stream or pond. Removing faded flowers will tidy plants up for the rest of the season. ?Kneiffii? is not an easy to find selection, and deserves to be seen more in gardens.
