Angelica is in fact a member of the carrot family, a very worthwhile and versatile ancient herb.

Young shoots have many uses including being added to salads, whereas the stems and roots can be used as a vegetable, and for flavouring gin and vermouth; the two year old stems can also be made into cake decorations, sweet meats or chopped into ice creams, the seeds in pastries!

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. 

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

  • 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.
