Angelica archangelica (Angelica Archangel) Herb Plant


Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.

The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.

Angelica Archangel (Angelica archangelica) Herb in 9cm Pot

Angelica Archangel is a biennial plant that is a fabulous addition to any border as it has bright green foliage and flower buds  which are green and contrast nicely with its pink stems, before opening to reveal yellow flowers held in flat umbels  from June - September The foliage and hollow grooved stems have a faint aniseed odor. Angelica archangelica, commonly known as Garden Angelica, Holy Ghost, Wild Celery, and Norwegian angelica, is a biennial plant that is becoming more and more fashionable in the garden and is a graceful plant in any situation.

Angelica Archangel is a large architecturally stunning plant that can reach 1.5M tall,  Angelica is an interesting addition to the herb garden, but it will also take its place at the back of the border too, providing height and interest into the autumn if the seed pods are left and these can be dried too for display. They are best sited in a full sun position, but will take some shade, and prefer moist soil.  Often short-lived, it will usually die back after flowering, but will self-seed freely if the conditions are favourable.

Due to the size of the plant and leaves, Angelica can be windblown, so may need staking once it has reached full size.

Herb Usage 

Angelica Archangel is found in the Northern regions of Denmark, Iceland and Scandinavia, Angelica is used here to flavour local aquavits, and elsewhere it is used in the production of candied cake decoration.  Can be used as a natural sweetener, chop the stems and add this to rhubarb to reduce the need for so much sugar. It has also been used as a digestive stimulant in the past.

    The plant was very healthy and lush. Packaging was solid and protected the plant even with the large leaves. I shall look forward to the plant growing in the garden.

    This product arrived in excellent condition and has since been potted up in a long-tom pot. It is now looking very statuesque in the middle of one of our borders.
