Plant details

Angelica archangelica is a majestic plant bearing huge, architectural flowerheads and delicate fresh green seedpods, in contrast with pink-flushed stems. It deserves a prominent position at the back of a border or in a wild part of the garden. All parts of the aromatic plant have culinary or medicinal uses, but it's best known for its candied stems, used as a cake decoration.The flowers are attractive to pollinators and the seeds are eaten by birds.
