Garden angelica, Angelica archangelica, is a very lovely biennial herb with lemon-scented flowers. It is hardy to Zone 4. Angelica can be started from seed, but be sure to plant soon after acquiring because its seed loses viability quickly. It may be best to purchase plants. It prefers partial shade and a moist, rich soil. Angelica makes a striking focal point in the garden; it will grow 3 to 8 feet tall. The seeds and stems can be candied and used in liqueurs or desserts; the young leaves and shoots can be added to mixed green salads. Angelica produces a tall white flower and will readily reseed in the fall. The long, red stems are perfect for floral arrangements and bouquets.
