Aruncus General Information

Aruncus is a stately, shrub-like perennial for a moist or partly shaded spot. Ivory white, Astilbe-like plumes top plants in summer. Perfect for a woodland garden or beside water. Foliage remains attractive all summer. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Aruncus Plant Care

May take a season to get going, but once established is long-lived and essentially maintenance free. Rarely required, but if desired may divide every 10 years; however, division tends to be difficult due to tough roots. Trimming spent flowers in midsummer after bloom will stimulate rebloom. Best in moist, rich soil.
