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.
Height of the foliage: 70 cm. Spread: 100 cm. Height of the inflorescences: 170 cm.
Grow in partial shade in good, moist, fertile, well-drained garden soil.
Maintenance: cut back the clumps at the start of winter and mulch with a mature compost in spring.
