Great shot of the white panicles against the blacked out background, Ed. It's like fireworks!
Beauty pleases, not only the eyes, but, the heart as well. Sheila

This photo enchants me. Even though it is a still image something about the energy of the shot feels like motion to me. I accidentally acquired an Aruncus two years ago. But mine is not as wonderful as this particular one. Thank you for this shot!

Jennifer, Aruncus comes as male and female as plants, the males are the showiest. the female has smaller less attractive blooms.
Fair warning if you have both, Aruncus will self sow with abandon

@EdBurton Thank you so much for that info! Very informative. I only have one so no self sowing. Mine must be female. But I do like it just fine. For the first year I had it I was told that it was an Astilbe. At least I figured out that that ID was incorrect.
