Buy angelica angelica / Angelica archangelica: Stunning accent plant

This herb dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full or partial shade
  • Soil: deep, moist, fertile, loamy soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy (but short-lived)

    Pretty, deeply cut leaves, which in early summer, are crowned by domes of tiny, luminous green flowerheads. 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.

Notes on angelica

"The statuesque lime-green umbels of this giant, man-high angelica are traditionally out by May 8th ( Archangel Day) and this biennial will thrive in deep shade"

Absolutely delighted


I bought an Angelica last year, but being biennial I am only just enjoying the flowers now. I have to say they are well worth the wait. They make a spectacular display and the bees love it. I am hoping it will self seed as it does seem very happy where I have planted it.
