Multnomah Falls Plant of the Day #15 Goats Beard

Goats Beard – Aruncus sylvester

This was my absolute favorite plant last year. It’s a gorgeous addition behind your favorite perennials or infront of larger evergreen shrubs. Goats Beard has a great spring green color that makes you want to sing when it first pops. But then doesn’t every sign of spring in Orgeon?

The blooms are white tufts that stay all summer to catch the breeze and keep their interest as they dry out in the fall. I like it best planted in groups of five or more. Its like having little fluffy white clouds in your garden, floating right at your knees.

Where: You’ll find Goats Beard tucked in the planter to the far right as you face the Lodge.
