Looking after an Aruncus

Posted: 27/05/2017 at 16:15

I've always assumed aruncus need damp soil and my RHS book says 'moist ground' ... but having read Lydia-ann's post I googled and some sites state that it's best in 'well-drained soil'.  


How 'well-drained' can they take? 


  I should have read Berghill's post ... duh!

I find they're happiest in dampish soil in dappled shade.


I think they're absolutely gorgeous.

It's one of the many types of pulmonaria ... lovely plants and great early sources of nectar for bees in the spring.
