This species of spikenard features dramatic cut-leaf aruncus-like foliage on a giant plant. The arching stems to 6' tall create a tropical effect in the garden. In late summer, the clumps are topped with giant panicles of white that are followed by equally large clusters of black berries... a real show-stopper!
