Angelica is a genus of about 60 large biennial and perennial herbs in the family Apiaceae. They are native to temperate parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Known commonly as Korean Angelica, they can even be found in sub-arctic regions, their range reaches as far north as Lapland, Greenland, and Iceland!
Angelica have palmately divided leaves and deep purples stems. A. gigas is a robust biennial or short-lived perennial. The stem ends in a large group of small purple or white flowers which grow in large clumps and make themselves known from late summer to early autumn. The ideal soil for your Angelica is deep moist soil in full or partial shade but they will be able to tolerate conditions that are a bit drier than this as long as you mulch them annually with compost or well-rotted manure. Your Angelica should never be allowed to dry out as they are not tolerant to drought.
These plants are pretty easy to care for as long as they have the proper light (full sun, full shade, or partial shade) and they’re in well-drained soil. After flowering, you should prune them and cut them back to keep them looking their best. Unfortunately, these plants can be prone to slugs, snails and aphids. They are safe for pets and young children.
