Aruncus dioicus, from its dense woody herbaceous rootstock, develops into a mass of foliage bedecked with plumes of white flowers. Reaching 2 metres and as much across, much appreciated by bees.
This is a plant that consistently produces a well developed head of flowers, both striking and architectural. A welcome addition to the border or as a stand alone specimen. The foliage is deeply cut, light green and holds its colour. Take time to appreciate the individual flower panicles as well as the mass of bloom.
Native to the temperate northern hemisphere where it enjoys a moist root run and partial shade. Growing in the F beds it competes well with a coniferous canopy and surrounding herbage.
