Cutleaf Goat's Beard Growing and Maintenance Tips
Soil should be consistently moist as Aruncus will not tolerate long periods of drought. Thrives in partial shade, or full sun if adequate moisture is provided. Finished flowers can be left on (if desired) as the dried plumes look attractive, lasting well into the summer. Plants are slow to establish. Some susceptibility to leaf spot, but generally an insect and disease free plant. Problems are more likely to appear in hot, humid summers.
