Aruncus dioicus

Height x Spread: 150cm x 100cm 

A spectacular and statuesque plant producing masses of creamy-white flowers in feathery plumes erupting from mounds of deeply cut green leaves.   Its flowering time is mid summer, its foliage looking good until the autumn when it puts on a further display, turning bright yellow.

Sun or part shade will allow it to flourish, making substantial clumps quite quickly.  A tall plant for the back of the border, it needs moist fertile soil, making it ideal for a bog garden and heavier soils.
