This regal shade dweller makes a statement, reaching up to 6 feet high with big, creamy white flower plumes reminiscent of a large astilbe. The ferny deep green leaves are also attractive. One of goatsbeard's other common names, bride's feathers, refers to the early summer bloom time of June. This moisture-lover likes shade along with plenty of water to prevent leaf scorch.

Perennial geraniums require the same type of growing conditions as goatsbeard. Try pairing it with 'Rozanne' or 'Jolly Bee', two varieties of geranium that bloom all summer long.Cinnamon fern
