Why the Rheinland Astilbe?
Transform a shady, damp, neglected part of your yard into a lush, colorful garden space! Rheinland Astilbe shines in such conditions, and it should be at the top of your list when you’re deciding what to plant. Ample moisture makes Rheinland produce lots of jagged, glossy, dark green leaves and loads of rich pink flowers. The blooms, held above the foliage in dense pyramidal clusters, appear during that blissful season between spring and summer. It’s a sweet show you’ll look forward to each year. Shade-loving companions like Hostas, Ferns, Bugloss, and Foamflower will round out your garden picture. Fabulous!
Although Astilbes originated in China, Japan, and Korea, Rheinland Astilbe’s story is centered in Germany. That’s where the great plant breeder, Geroge Arends, lived. Arends founded his nursery in 1888. A devoted plantsman, he traded seeds and cuttings with friends around the world and hybridized his own plants, always seeking improvements or something new. He had a special fondness for Astilbes. In his lifetime, he introduced 74 new Astilbes to the world (including this one) and 350 plants in all. Bombings during both World Wars destroyed much of his nursery, but each time he picked up the pieces and went back to work.
How to use in the landscape?

How To Plant
Rheinland Astilbe is best in afternoon shade. It will also grow in deep shade. Astilbes need regular irrigation to maintain bright, healthy foliage. Some people like the look of the spent seedheads and leave them standing; others cut them down as soon as the flowers have finished. Shear back all old stems and leaves in early spring. Mulch and fertilize annually—Astilbes are heavy feeders. Digging and dividing plants every three years will keep them growing vigorously (and will give you more plants!).
How To Water
Water as soon as they arrive! Astilbe plants need to be watered regularly to maintain evenly moist soil for proper establishment in the landscape.
