Goats Beard Growing and Maintenance Tips

Goat's Beard will grow its best in moist humus-rich soils. Grows well in full sun in northern climates and prefers partial or full shade in the southern part of its region. Insects and diseases don't seem to bother this plant. It is a slow growing plant in the first couple seasons, but once it is established it puts on a show year after year.123
