Angelica archangelica, commonly called garden angelica, is a bold, somewhat coarse, biennial that may be grown in the garden for both ornamental and culinary purposes. In the first year, it produces a clump of compound leaves. In the second year, a hollow-but-stout stem rises to 6' tall bearing large, ornamentally-attractive, globular flower umbels (each to 6" diameter). The flowers bloom in early summer, followed by seed that ripens in late summer. Plants die after the seed ripens. The compound, biternate, yellow-green leaves have distinctive inflated stem bases. Lower leaves typically grow to 2-3' long with toothed individual leaflets (to 3" long). Numerous tiny greenish-white flowers combine to form large, globular, compound umbels (to 6" diameter). Leaves, stems, roots and seeds (all with a taste of licorice) have been cultivated for many years for both culinary and medicinal purposes. Culinary uses include: (1) leaves may be added to mixed salads; (2) stalks and young shoots may be used like celery or crystallized in sugar for cake decorations or snacks; (3) leaves, seeds and roots may be used for making tea; (4) seed is commercially used for flavoring liqueurs (as Chartreuse). Plants also have a long folk history in Europe and Asia for medicinal uses.
