More Details

Beautiful, architectural flowers and equally good seed pods through spring and summer. Green with contrasting crimson-pink stems.

A magnificent garden plant and natural sweetener. Add this to rhubarb to reduce the need for so much sugar.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow May-June direct where it is to grow, or in a seed tray outside to be planted out August-September. Transplant when young as older plants dislike being moved.
Care Tips Try adding this to the back of a herbaceous border. Mulch deeply in dry conditions. To prevent it from self-seeding, deadhead after flowering, or leave to self-sow. May need staking.
Flowering June - September (with wonderful seedpods after that).
Vase Life Will dry, so indefinite.
Harvesting Harvest the flowers only once they have turned to seed pods, or they tend to flop.
Cooking Notes Add a handful of fresh angelica stems, cut in short pieces, to rhubarb to counteract its tartness and reduce the need for sugar. Saute or steam the young shoots, as you would asparagus, or candy them as you would ginger.
