Goat's Beard Plant (Aruncus dioicus)

Goat's Beard Plant: Aruncus dioicus, aka bride's feathers or the goat's beard plant, is a deciduous perennial wildflower with soaring height and a striking feathery plume on top. The species is native to several continents, including Europe, Asia, and North America.

Goat's beard plants grow naturally in filtered sunshine or full sun locations. The native habitat of Aruncus dioicus is a forest clearing, rich with organic matter and consistent moisture (without sogginess!).

As a native species, goat's beard plants are well-adjusted across much of the United States, preferring moderate temperate climates. When you add a few goat's beard plants to your yard, it becomes a showstopper. The goat's beard is a centerpiece that will gather attention thanks to its soaring height and signature plume.

Goat's Beard Can Host the Rarely-Sighted Dusky Azure Butterfly

The dusky azure butterfly is a rare sight. It relies on the goat's beard plant as its larval host. Without a plentiful goat's beard, the dusky azure cannot lay eggs--it depends on the plant's nectar and its large, dense foliage to hide the eggs and new caterpillars from predatory birds.

Dusty azure interactions most commonly occur in the higher elevations of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Georgia. Sparse sightings have also happened in western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee, and north as far as Indiana.

The dusky azure butterfly is elusive and rare, but as they seek new habitats, planting Aruncus dioicus might help--it's at least worth a try to save them.

The Feathery Plume of the Goat's Beard Plant Is So Unique

The goat's beard plant can grow as high as six feet, and they spread through a vigorous root system, so give them about four feet of elbow room.

Large bright green leaves grow on narrow but sturdy stems. Each leaf can reach two to four feet long, is oval-shaped, and has serrated edges. The tall, feathery, cream-colored spikes rise from the leaves and tower above them at the end of spring or early summer. When the plumes finish showing off, some gardeners cut them back to make the plant grow into a bushier shape. Others, however, leave them to go to seed and watch the birds descend on the tall spikes to collect the bounty.
