More About Aruncus 'Horatio'

  • introduced by the famous German nurseryman Ernst Pagels
  • Cross of Aruncus aethusifolius, a low growing species with fine glossy leaves with common, much taller and courser A. dioicus.

Its flowers are arranged in long thin flower spikes and these start tuning brown along their length so that an interesting two tone effect develops that looks attractive rather than detracting from the plants elegance.

We do NOT SHIP plants. ALL Sales are in person at our garden center.
