Aruncus aethusifolius
Common Name: Goat’s Beard Family: Rosaceae (The Rose Family)

A truly useful, shade-tolerant, dwarf plume-flowering plant from Korea that looks excellent in the front of the border or in the dappled light of a woodland garden - it mixes well with practically any of the hardy geraniums. Amazing fall colour if it is in a sunny glade! Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
