All Goat's Beard have lovely fern-like foliage topped by creamy plumes of flowers in mid-summer. These tough, yet elegant plants thrive in most garden conditions - plant them in sun or shade, moist or dry soils. The flower plumes dry beautifully on the plant and will provide interest throughout the winter, but will need to be cut down with shears in the spring.

A. diocius is a statuesque yet versatile plant. It is grand enough to stand on its own as a lawn specimen, works beautiful within a general garden setting, and can be incorporated into wilder parts of the garden.

Male and female plants behave slightly differently. Male plants are usually more feathery; female plants have long lasting seed heads which are useful for drying. Our plants were grown from seed and are not differentiated.

Historically, the roots of this plant were used to treat bee stings.
