Angelica Plants

angelica archangelica

Angelica is one of the most versatile herb plants that we offer! The large, lobed leaves and thick, hollow stems of Angelica are a striking addition to garden landscapes and fresh or dried bouquets. As a culinary herb, the leaves and stalks of this herb plant are sweet tasting and are terrific for garnishing and candying for desserts. Makes a wonderful tisane that tastes similar to China tea.

As a medicinal herb, Angelica root is an antimicrobial and is used to fight infection, to improve energy, and to stimulate circulation. This herb's carminative properties aide in digestion and reduce gas, while its expectorant and stimulant factors make this a great remedy for common colds and reducing fevers.

Also known as "the Root of the Holy Ghost" Angelica was believed to be a charm to ward off evil. Throughout history Angelica was associated with magic and witchcraft and was revered by Pagans before Christianity took over, and this sweet herb adapted a more popular spiritual significance.

Reviewer: MARK LUCE from FAYETTEVILLE, NC United States  
It appeared to be great but it died.  It did not winter well.

Angelica in the deep south May 30, 2014
Reviewer: steph laird from mobile, AL United States  
I ordered angelica to grow in Mobile, Alabama, zone 8b.  Although she arrived healthy and settled in well to her part shade home, she did not survive our summer.  If I was to try the herb again I would plant out by the end of February to give her more time to grow before our killing heat.

Angelica February 24, 2014
Reviewer: Sarah from Maryland  
I bought angelica after seeing it everywhere on a trip to Iceland, but it grows much taller here because the sun is still up in winter! It's a very nice plant; fast-growing, hardy, and attracts black swallowtail caterpillars! We found six of them on our plant last summer (but they didn't do any noticeable damage). Would recommend this plant.

Satisfying and easy to grow Angelica February 17, 2014
Reviewer: Katharine Jones from St Louis, MO United States  
Very easy to grow and behaves a lot like lovage, i.e. lasts 3 or 4 years before flowering, seeding and dying if in part shade, but will flower and seed all in one year if in full sun.  Dies down to nothing in winter (if it has not yet flowered), comes back with fresh growth in spring. Green stalks make interesting cocktail stirrers for savoury cocktails like Bloody Mary.
