Description

One of my very favourite plants, with aromatic flower heads, adored by bees, butterflies and birds. I love it for the back of the border and as a cut flower.

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.
