  • Compact size: As the name suggests, Dwarf Goat's Beard is a smaller variety of the plant, making it perfect for smaller gardens or containers.
  • Attractive foliage: The plant features deeply cut, fern-like leaves that have a unique texture and add interest to any garden.
  • Beautiful blooms: In early summer, Dwarf Goat's Beard produces clusters of creamy white flowers that resemble miniature astilbe blooms. These add a lovely splash of colour to the garden and attract pollinators like bees and butterflies.

Care Guide

  • Sunlight: Dwarf Goat's Beard prefers partial shade to full sun, and too much direct sunlight can cause the leaves to scorch.
  • Moisture: The plant prefers well-drained soil and regular watering, but it is drought-tolerant once established.
  • Pruning: Regular pruning is necessary to keep Dwarf Goat's Beard compact and maintain its shape, as it can become leggy and overgrown without proper care.
