A magnificent plant both in the garden and vase, and a natural sweetener. Add this to rhubarb to reduce the need for so much sugar.
This perennial grows to statuesque proportions and has rounded umbels of light yellow flowers in early summer turning to beautiful seed pods which look fantastic dried.
Grow angelica in moist soil in partial shade. Great on the back of a border. Mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost. May nee support.
