This is a most worthwhile and versatile ancient herb. It is a member of the carrot family! It is a very attractive plant in it's own right with hand like leaves and clusters of small white/green flowers which only appear in the second year (and if not cut off the plant usually dies).

Young shoots can be added to salads, the stems and roots can be used as a vegetable and the seeds in pastries. The stems can also be peeled, cut into small slices, steamed and thereafter crystallised for cake decoration, sweet meats and chopped and included in home made ice cream and cakes!

The roots and stems smell strongly of gin no surprise as this is one of the 'botanicals' used in the flavouring of gin and vermouths.

The crushed leaves are said to reduce travel sickness whilst a tea made from it is purported to improve lost appetites. Additionally, if stewed and added to bath water it said to relieve rheumatism and aching muscles.

Also known as Garden Angelica, Holy Ghost, Wild Celery or Norwegian angelica.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

Recommended by the RHS to assist in encouraging bats into the garden as the flowers are likely to attract moths and other night-flying insects which bats love to eat!

  • Hardy biennial.
  • Stem can get to arms thickness at base.
  • Flowers July - August.
  • Prefers deep, moist soil (likes riverbanks!)
  • Will grow in full sun (but benefits from a mulch) or partial shade.
  • Will self seed.
  • Plant 2 - 3 feet (60 - 100 cm) apart.
  • Top Tips
  • Angelica will self seed everywhere if allowed to flower and set seed so either cut the flowers off before they set or 'bag' the flower heads.
  • Being biennial it is likely to die if allowed to set seed. It is, however, hardy so it is worthwhile prolonging the life of the plant from year to year by cutting off the flowers before they set seed and / or cutting the plant down to ground level in the Autumn.
