Aruncus sylvestris


Availability : Available

Description :

Like a giant Astilbe!

Aruncus sylvestris belongs to the Rosaceae family and is native in the Northern Hemisphere (from North America, Europe, the Caucasus to Siberia, Northern China and Japan) where it can be found generally in mountainous areas in damp woodlands, near rivers or forest edges.

Commonly known as goat's beard or bride's feathers Aruncus sylvestris grows into a generous clump about 200 cm in height tipped by tall panicles of creamy white flowers. Summer flowering from June to August.

In the garden we like to plant it en masse to form a colony under trees or along the edge of a pond and sheltered from drying winds. It needs good garden earth that is sufficiently moist in summer.

In a white-themed garden, we can combine it with Veronicastrum virginicum 'Album' planted behind white-flowering perennials: Leucanthemum, Lysimachia clethroides.

In other situations, for any partial shade bed, Aruncus sylvestris is an excellent curtain plant.

Grow in shade or partial shade in good, moist to damp garden soil.
