Very attractive. I don't have this either, but would think it needs a lot of room doesnt it ?

Thankyou girls :-), it does get quite large Cinders around 5-6ft tall, go on sure you could fit one in :-), reminds me of a giant astilbe :-)

Thankyou all glad you like it :-), wondering if I have two varieties as I bought a plant before my Dad gave me this one and it seems to flower much later, only just getting buds now.
Look forward to seeing your pink one Amy :-)

Kathy / Dawn .. have a confession to make when I thought about it ... mine isn't Aruncus ( Goatsbeard ) it's Filipendula rosaceae rubra ( Meadow sweet ) , if you google it you will see how similar it is to the Goatsbeard , but well worth having with it being a pretty pink .... :o)

Lol Amy, easy to get them mixed up. I have a pink meadow sweet too, cant remember the name just now. Meadow sweet loves the damp conditions, do you have it somewhere wet ;)

Love these huge plants, sadly not enough room.....

11 Jun, 2012

 

It does look similar Amy :-) I have the creamy coloured meadowsweet didn't know there was a pink, just googled it very pretty.
Love my huge perennials DD, just been planting out some Phytolacca I've grown from seed this year, can't wait to see that in flower, although I like the seed heads more :-)

I don't know that one, will look forward to seeing your pics....

Kathy, have you seen Pokeweed in the flesh, so to speak.
