(Rosaceae - rose family)
Goatsbeard Two or three species of tall, perennial herbs of the Northern Hemisphere. Cultivated as ornamentals.

dioicus peren • ht 3-5' • zones 3-9


sun - part shade
e N Amer

This erect, shrub-like perennial develops its abundant, fern-like foliage quickly in the spring. In late spring the plants are topped with large, feathery white plumes of tiny flowers. The plumes remain attractive long after the flowers have faded. The tiny brown seed capsules cling to the female plants to provide winter interest. Similar in appearance to an astilbe, but larger and easier to grow. Goatsbeard is an excellent background or accent plant for shady, moist spots and is well suited to woodland gardens. Prefers humusy soil and a temperate climate. Goat's beard occurs naturally along lower wooded slopes, at the base of bluffs and in moist woodlands. Make sure to allow at least 2' of space on all sides when you plant goatsbeard, as it grows quite large and is relatively difficult to transplant. Good for cut flowers, either fresh or dried. Resistant to deer, insects, and diseases.
