Description :

Quite an eye-catcher!

Aruncus 'Horatio' is a hybrid cross between Aruncus dioicus X Aruncus aethusifolius, introduced by German nurseryman, Ernst Pagels.

The plant forms a majestic clump of deeply divided leaves (somewhat like a fern) and spectacular flowering panicles, which start off long and white, fading to bronze.

For a shady bed, light woodland, riverbanks or pondsides. Plant en masse for a spectacular and always successful display which will last for weeks.
