In nature, it is widely distributed in Kamchatka.
The plant reaches 150 cm in height. The leaves are compound, double-pinnate. The flowers are white, small in compact, slightly branched paniculate inflorescences up to 15 cm long.
Blooms from June, seeds ripen in September. It has an alpine form (f. alpina) up to 30 cm tall.
Seeds are sown in rich, loose, well-drained soil. They are kept at +10°C for 1 week, then the germination temperature is raised to +20+27°C. Seedlings appear after 35 days. They are grown at +15+18°C. Plants bloom in 50-54 weeks.
Location: Aruncus reach its greatest effect with light shading and a sufficient supply of moisture in the soil. They also thrive in open areas. In the sun, the plants burn out, their leaves acquire a yellowish tint.
Soil: undemanding, they can be either heavy or light, but always moist, deeply cultivated, with a sufficient content of organic matter.
Care: very responsive to organic fertilization. The inflorescences are cut off immediately after flowering, and the plants themselves - in the fall, leaving stumps 3-5 cm high.
In one place they can grow up to 6 or more years. Additional moisture is required during prolonged dry weather.
Watering aruncus should be plentiful. An adult plant takes 3-4 buckets of water.
Such a large perennial needs regular feeding. In the spring, nitrogen fertilizer is applied, later, 2-3 times with a break of 10-15 days, a fermented infusion of cut grass and weeds, diluted with water 10 times.
Immediately after flowering, simultaneously with watering, the bush is fed with phosphorus-potassium fertilizer, after which the soil around it is mulched with half-rotted coniferous litter, sawdust or peat with a layer of 5 cm.
