A striking specimen, very much like Angelica hispanica, but larger overall, bearing impressive, thick, glossy ternate leaves. Enormous sprays of yellow-green flower heads appear in early summer.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months, sometimes up to a year in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner and do not discard. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate but do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter even deeper dormancy.
Common name:Shiny-leaved Angelica, Archangel
Classification:Hardy perennial, Hardy biennial
