For a few years I wasn't sure if my Korean Goat's Beard were huge because of favorable conditions or was it a unknown hybrid - now I have found it's name! It strongly resembles Korean Goat's Beard in foliage and flowers except that on average it grows two feet in height, then flowers are almost 2 and a half feet. Will thrive in part shade and woodland shade, will take years before it's divideable and does not seed itself.
