Three Season Interest in a Unique Perennial
Dwarf Goat's Beard, Aruncus aethusifolius, is a perky little plant that grows anywhere, stays tidy, provides three-season interest, and it is absolutely unappealing to slugs! An herbaceous perennial, Aruncus aethusifolius disappears during the winter.
Its fernlike, green foliage, similar to that of the astilbe, emerges in the spring and is topped in May and early June by four-inch, waving panicles of tiny, cream-colored flowers. When grown in full sun, Dwarf Goat's Beard develops a fine fall color, turning a rich, burnished red as the season progresses. The entire plant seldom grows taller than 12 inches.
Dwarf Goat's Beard can be placed at the very front of the border, where its finely cut foliage and appealing form can be seen close up. It is also very suitable for rock gardens and other special areas where plantings are all on a small scale. It will be happy in full sun or part shade, and its preference is for moist, shady places.
