Goat's Beard Growing and Maintenance Tips
Goat's Beard grows best in moist, humus-rich soils. In northern climates, it can be grown in full sun given adequate moisture. In southern zones, however, it prefers partial or full shade. When grown in deep shade, plants tend to have a more open habit and bloom sparsely. Insects and diseases don't seem to bother this plant.
