Aruncus 'Chantilly Lace' PPAF CPBRAF

Goat's Beard
Aruncus aethusifolius

With the addition of 'Chantilly Lace' to the Proven Winners® program, you can be well on your way to a complete shade garden lineup! This part shade-loving plant produces beautiful sprays of lacy, cream-colored flowers in late spring to early summer. It is very floriferous when it's in bloom, completely covering the deep green foliage. Goatsbeard is similar in appearance to Astilbe in the garden, but it is more drought tolerant.   'Chantilly Lace' will be shorter if grown in full sun, closer to 24" tall, than if grown in shade or a sun-filtered area, where it will grow to a height of 30-32".   Though Aruncus tends to be a slow-grower the first couple of seasons, once it is established it puts on a fabulous show year after year. Make sure it has plenty of room to grow when you first plant it; transplanting this species is a very difficult task. This species is native to North America.   Height: 30 Inches Spread: 40 Inches Flower Color: White Foliage Color: Green Sun or Shade?: Full sun to Full shade Want to see wings?: Bee friendly Need critter resistant plants?: Deer resistant   *Photo and info courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.
