|Design Ideas||Plant a large cluster of this Astilbe in a favorite shady location to show off a summertime display of clear pink, feathery plumes. Select companions that are less than two feet tall and are spreading or clumping in form to avoid competing with the erect form of the Rheinland Astilbe. Also consider plants that may bloom in late summer to provide added color as this Astilbe fades.|

|Care||Thrives in organically rich, evenly moist, acidic, well-drained soil, sited in bright shade or filtered sun; does not tolerate dry conditions. Mulch to keep roots cool and moist, avoiding the crown. Clip spent blooms for a tidy appearance. Remove old foliage and stems in early spring. Feed in early spring, and again after bloom.|
|Lore||Astilbe chinensis var Davidii is named for Pere Armand David, a Jesuit missionary in China credited with bringing a large number of new plants to the west via Jardin des Plantes in France.|
