We acquired this plant resembling an extremely lovely dwarf angelica some years ago, and called it Angelica 'Summer Delight' but have finally pinned a botanic name to it. Produces low compact clumps of thick shiny leaves above which arise purple stems carrying sprays of white flowers.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
