Goat’s Beard is the next tall shade perennial on my list.
It has creamy white lacy blossoms that float above delicate serrated dark green foliage on a hardy plant which thrives in full shade.
This plant looks a lot like Astilbe but it doesn’t require as much water to survive.
Goat’s Beard can take a couple of years to get going in your garden. But once it is established, it is easy to care for and covers the plant in blooms every year.
Try to plant it in its “forever home” as this perennial doesn’t like to be moved.
