PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Aruncus dioicus AGM
Goatsbeard, Goat's Beard
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Spring/early summer
Height 5-8ft/1.5-2.5m
Light preference Full sun/part shade
Soil preference Moist, fertile
Sowing time/depth Autumn-spring, Surface
Resembling an astilbe, but larger and more vigorous, this stunning plant gives a wonderful display of creamy-white, feathery flower plumes in late spring to early summer. The flowers retain their freshness longer in more shady areas, but the plant will also perform well in full sun. Well deserving of the Award of Garden Merit bestowed upon it by The Royal Horticultural Society!
Sowing and/or growing instructions
The seed is very fine - almost like dust - so surface sow at 65F. If no germination occurs after 28 days or so, place pot in the fridge for three to five weeks, then bring back into the light at 65F. Germination is sporadic and may take many weeks. Note: Packet contents may include chaff.
