Wild Angelica is a British Wildflower and a great garden plant.  Plants have large leaves, hollow stems and rounded umbels of flowers in July to September.  Flowers vary in shades of white to pale pink.  The flowers fade into seedheads which look good over winter.  Wild Angelica grows to a height of 1-2m and looks good in wildflower gardens, cottage gardens, wooded areas and borders.


Plants grow best in damper soils in sun to part shade to light woodland.

Sow Seeds need a period of chilling to germinate.  Sow the seeds in late summer to early autumn, either directly into the ground or into cells of compost in an unheated greenhouse or cold frame.  Press the seeds into the surface of the compost and do not cover with compost as light is needed for germination.  Seeds start to germinate in the spring.  Avoid disturbing the roots when transplanting seedlings from cells into small pots and into the ground.
Grow

These are low maintenance plants once established.  Cut back plants in autumn or spring and they may survive for a few years.  Plants self seed in the right conditions if the seedheads are left on the plants for a while after flowering.
