Plant of the Week: Aruncus dioicus var kamtschaticus

The common name for this plant is “Russian” goats beard or “Korean” goats beard, either way its a lovely plant which grows 3 to 4 foot tall with broad fern-like leaves and large white fluffy plumes. These plumes are made up of many tiny starry flowers and bloom for many weeks through June and July. Its a very adaptable and hardy plant, we have it in several positions in the nursery garden from full sun through to full shade. After several weeks of flowering the plumes deepen in colour through cream to a biscuity shade.Aruncus dioicus var kamtschaticus
