Goat's Beard Plant - Aruncus dioicus
Goat's Beard is a hardy perennial plant often used in gardening and landscaping to fill in space. Along with providing ground cover, Goat's Beard performs well with other plants and is appropriate for flower beds. The plant has light green foliage that bushes out and offers plenty of ground cover, along with pretty white blooms in the summer months. It can also be used by a backyard fountain or pond, as it enjoys moist areas.
To thrive, Goat's Beard needs moist ground and soil with plenty of nutrients, so make sure you're choosing the right spot before you plant. It is deer resistant, so if you've had a problem with nibbling animals, this might be just the plant for you, primarily as it can be used as a screen. Make sure to keep the plant free from grubs and bugs that might ruin its beautiful foliage, then step back and let Goat's Beard grow into an attractive garden feature!
