Aruncus aethusifolius

Common Name: Dwarf Goat's Beard

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.
