The Q&A Archives: Goats Beard

Question: I have been given some seeds marked "Goats Beard". What is this, and how do you plant the seeds? Any other data very much appreciated!

Answer: This is probably seed for Aruncus dioicus which is a big, tall (up to 7 feet!) almost shrubby perennial with feathery white or greenish blooms during the summer. It needs a rich moist soil in sun or part shade. To start the seeds, first try planting them normally and see if they germinate. If they haven't done so within a few weeks, chill them (24 -39 degrees F) for several weeks and try again.
