Dahurian angelica(Angelica dahurica)Herb in 1Litre Pot

Dahurian Angelica,  Bai Zhi or Chinese Angelica as it is sometimes known is an upright perennial herb that is becoming more and more fashionable in the garden. A large, architecturally stunning plant that can reach 1 - 2 meters tall, this interesting addition to the herb garden is best sited in a full sun, but it will take some shade, and prefers moist soil. It has large rounded umbels of green to white flowers.

Due to the height and size of the leaves, Angelica can be windblown, so may need staking once it has reached full size. Producing a large head of flowers in July & August, Angelica is a graceful plant in any situation.
