Masses of tiny creamy-white flowers on arching wiry stems in June and July and finely divided fern-like mid-green leaves. This attractive summer-flowering perennial flourishes in moist soil in sun or partial shade. More compact than the species Aruncus dioicus it's particularly suitable for small gardens or where border space is limited.
- Garden care: Cut back the flowered stems hard to just above ground-level in autumn and apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
