This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full or partial shade
  • Soil: deep, moist, fertile, loamy soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy (but short-lived)

    This angelica 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 usually short-lived and will die back after setting seed.

  • Garden care: To prevent the plant from self-seeding, deadhead after flowering. Even if you leave the seedheads, it tends not to self-seed as freely as other angelicas, so needs to be replaced regularly.
