About Aruncus

Aruncus are considerable, clump forming perennials that make an impressive statement especially in shady spaces. They are also commonly referred to as Goats Beard. This is due to their feathery plumes of small, creamy white flowers that form funnels to closely resemble a long bushy beard. These highly textured flowers are held high on an abundance of pinnately divided leaves. Aruncus look particularly attractive in flower beds and borders within cottage and informal garden settings. You should expect to see Aruncus grow to an approximate height and spread of 1.5m (5’).

How to plant Aruncus

Aruncus are best planted in poorly-drained soil of clay and loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. These plants are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade. You need to ensure that the planting area retains moisture and drains water at a slow rate. Aruncus will spread out and so it is vital to determine an appropriate site that will allow plenty of space for its mature height and spread.

How to care for Aruncus

Aruncus should be cut back during the summer when it starts to look unkempt and untidy. This is to create a pleasing shape and to avoid detriment to companion plants. Soil should be kept moist throughout the growing season, especially during periods of dry weather.

How to propagate Aruncus

It is possible to propagate Aruncus by seed sown during the spring or autumn or by division during the spring time.
