Garden Angelica

Angelica (Angelica Archangelica Holy Ghost) - Commonly called garden angelica, sweet celery, Norwegian or American Angelica is a bold, somewhat coarse, biennial which is often grown in the garden for both ornamental and culinary purposes. By its second year, a hollow-but-stout stem rises to 6 feet tall bearing large, ornamentally-attractive, globular greenish-white flower umbels up to 6 inches across. The flowers bloom in early summer, followed by seed that ripens in late summer. After the seed ripens the Angelica plants will die.

Leaves, stems, roots and seeds all have a similar taste to licorice and have been cultivated for many years for both culinary and medicinal purposes. Culinary uses include: leaves may be added to mixed salads, stalks and young shoots may be used like celery (hence the often used name of wild celery) or crystallized in sugar for cake decorations or snacks, leaves, seeds and roots may be used for making tea, seed is commercially used for flavoring liqueur. Plants also have a long folk history in Europe and Asia for medicinal uses.
