Aruncus (ar-runk-us) Goat's Beard, Rose Family (Rosaceae); is a striking perennial, native to rich woods of North America, Europe and Asia. Aruncus grows best in moist to wet, organically rich soils. In northern climates, it can be grown in full sun if provided with adequate moisture. In southern zones, it prefers partial or full shade. Foliage decline can occur rapidly if soils are permitted to dry out. When grown in deep shade, plants tend to have a more open habit and bloom sparsely. No serious insect or disease problems. Some susceptibility to leaf spot.

Though Aruncus tends to be a slow-grower the first couple of seasons, once it is established it puts on a fabulous show year after year. Make sure it has plenty of room to grow when you first plant it; transplanting this species is a very difficult task. This species is native to North America.

Goatsbeard is similar in appearance to Astilbe in the garden, but it is more drought tolerant. Removing faded flower stalks will not prolong bloom, but may improve plant appearance, particularly if a ground cover look is desired. However, if left uncut dried seed plumes provide ornamental effect.
Attributes: border plants, cut flowers or foliage, edging and plant in mass. Deer resistant.
