Creamy color for the shade!
Chantilly Lace Aruncus (common name: Goats Beard) is a shady garden dream plant. It is a challenge to find a plant that will give you a lot of spectacular flowers in the shade. You often have to choose between foliage and flowers. Not with Chantilly Lace! This lovely plant has nice mounding leaves spring, summer and fall, but in midsummer it is smothered in sprays of cream-colored flowers that look like antique lace. And when we say ‘smothered’ we mean that it is so floriferous that sometime all of the foliage is completely covered!
Goats Beard look a lot like that shade garden stalwart, Astilbe, but it is much more drought tolerant so you can use it more freely.
You’ll want to be patient with Chantilly Lace. It can be a slow-grower the first season or two. Once it is established, though, it will put on a fabulous show every year. Make sure that you plant it where you want it and give it plenty of room to grow. (It will get about 30” high and 40” wide.) It doesn’t like to be moved once it’s rooted in.
Aruncus is a North American native, so you know that it is hardy and well-suited to our environs. It looks great planted with big leaved hostas and fancy-colored coral bells, and will absolutely make that shady corner ignite with texture and movement. (Bees and butterflies love it!)
Chantilly Lace is a pretty face for your landscape, so don’t let it get away!
