| ||Common Name: Goat's Beard-Dwarf|
A miniature Goat's Beard with the same traits as A. dioicus at roughly 1/3 the size. This selection grows only 12 in. tall with fine, glossy, fern-like foliage.
From early to midsummer, plants are adorned with 3-4" long, feathery spikes of creamy white flowers. This plant is great for tucking into small areas of a shade or rock garden. In fall, the foliage becomes a brilliant patchwork of yellow and orange.

Goat's Beard grows best in moist, humus-rich soils. In northern climates, it can be grown in full sun if provided with adequate moisture. In southern zones, however, it prefers partial or full shade. When grown in deep shade, plants tend to have a more open habit and bloom sparsely. Insects and diseases don't seem to bother this plant.
