P. A herb which belongs to the parsley family (Umbelliferae) and is still used in confectionery. It prefers a cool soil and some shade. Angelica archangelica grows to about 5 ft. and the greenish-yellow flowers must be removed to prevent seeding, otherwise the plant may die. Seed should be sown as soon as ripe in late summer, the seedlings being set at least 2 ft. apart. They may not flower until the third year. The blanched midribs of the leaves may be used like celery or the leaf-stalks for flavouring.
