Aruncus dioicus, commonly known as goat's beard or bride's feathers, is a species of flowering plant in the Rosaceae family. It is native to Europe, temperate regions of Asia, and North America.
Goat's beard is a herbaceous perennial that typically grows to a height of 1 to 2 meters (3 to 6 feet) and forms large, bushy clumps. It has attractive, deeply divided, fern-like compound leaves that are bright green in color. In late spring or early summer, it produces long, branching inflorescences or panicles that are composed of small, cream-colored or white flowers. These feathery plumes give the plant its common names, "goat's beard" and "bride's feathers."
This plant prefers moist, well-drained soil and partial shade to full shade conditions. It is often grown in woodland gardens, shade gardens, or borders, where it adds a touch of elegance with its feathery blooms and lush foliage. Goat's beard is known for its tolerance to different soil types and its ability to attract pollinators, such as bees and butterflies.
It's worth noting that Aruncus dioicus is dioecious, meaning male and female flowers are borne on separate plants. Only the female plants produce attractive plumes of flowers.
