Aruncus aethusifolius 'Noble spirit'

Korean goat's beard

A truly indispensable perennial for damp shade that is easy to grow and very hardy. 

From Korea, it's a miniature form of its larger and more unwieldy relative, Aruncus dioicus. 

The foliage is tightly packed and finely cut forming dense mounds of the freshest green above bright red stems. A profusion of fluffy, creamy-white spikes rise 30cm above and resemble the flowers of Astilbe. In autumn the foliage turns golden and the flowers a chestnut brown. 

Plant this with hardy geraniums, epimediums or hostas. 

Slow growing but charming.
