Angelica Gigas


A handsome, tall darkly coloured plant with tiny mahogany-purple flowers forming a gently dome head of flowers on thick, upright dark red stems above a mound of soft green leaves. This is a biennial which means it flowers in its second year, then dies. It will seed about however, if it likes the situation.

I love, love, love, this plant!! Angelica gigas is a stunning, architectural plant that will add height and drama to a border. It produces dome-shaped heads of plum-purple flowers on red-tinted stems in August and September and it has pretty, deeply cut leaves. Try it at the back of a sunny, herbaceous or mixed border, where the flowerheads will attract bees. It performs best in moist, fertile soil. This plant is monocarpic, so dies back after setting seed.
