Goat's Beard Plants perennials are popular because they're easy to grow and has a pleasant aroma.
Goat's beard is usually pest resistant, which makes the plants ideal for a low-maintenance garden. The plant has feather-like plumes of flowers that grow in clusters. The flower groups are positioned on tall stalks that grow higher than the plant's foliage. Goat's beard grows in several stunning colors, including, red, pink, purple, and white. The plant starts blooming in the middle of spring and continues until the end of summer.
Goat's beards make a great garden addition because the flowers are vibrant when they initially bloom.
As the flowers remain on the stalk and the plant widens, the flower color lightens. Flowers stay on the goat's beard for months, and even though they begin to dry in mid-summer, you don't have to deadhead the plant. It's best to split the plant about every 5 years to keep the goat's beard health. Be sure to water the goat's beard after replanting so the plant will re-establish quickly.
Goat's beard thrives in average soil that is not too moist and not too dry. You should water the plant regularly but be careful not to overwater. The plant needs both sun and shade to grow and thrives well in hardiness zones 3-9.
This plant also has medicinal properties. When you grow goat's beard in your yard, you can use the plant to decrease your appetite so you can stick to your health and weight loss goals. Goat's beard is also used as an herbal heartburn treatment and can aid in digestion. You can even take goat's beard to reduce water retention. If you're adventurous when it comes to cooking, add the roots to your salads and stews, since the roots have a taste that is similar to oysters.
