Aruncus aethusifolius

Dwarf Goat's Beard

Aruncus aethusifolius, commonly referred to as Dwarf Goat’s Beard. Let’s explore its fascinating features:

  • Appearance:

    • It forms a charming clump of fern-like, dark green leaves on red stems, reaching an approximate height of 15 cm.
    • During late spring through summer, it produces 20 cm spikes adorned with Astilbe-like plumes of tiny, creamy pink flowers.
    • The flower plumes, even after they finish blooming, create an ornamental effect, eliminating the need for removal.
    • The foliage transitions into a lovely autumn color with shades of orangey-ginger as the colder season approaches.
    • This hardy plant is frost-tolerant and easy to grow.


  • Ideal Growing Conditions:

    • Partly shaded areas in rock gardens, border fronts, woodland gardens, or shade gardens are the best spots for planting.
    • It also thrives when placed in a planter pot or trough.


  • Benefits:

    • Ground cover: It works well as ground cover due to its low height and spreading habit.
    • Edging: Use it along pathways or garden borders for a neat and attractive edge.
    • Ornamental Value: The flower plumes add beauty, and the autumn foliage enhances visual interest.
