This angelica is biennial and dies back after flowering but will self-seed freely in the right spot. It performs best in moist shade and it has a wide range of culinary and medicinal uses. Try it at the back of a herb garden or among grasses and perennials and give it space to express itself. A stunning architectural plant that adds height and drama to a border.
- Garden care: This plant usually dies after flowering but if flowering is prevented or the spent flowers are removed before they set seed then it will often flower again for a second year.
