Angelica is native to northern Europe, growing wild in damp and mountainous regions and cultivated in European gardens since the Middle Ages.
Angelica is an aromatic, herbaceous plant that grows more than two meters high. It is ephemeral, blooming only once before dying. Its large, hollow stems are fluted, reddish, and bear large, bipinnate, serrated leaves. The inflorescences are composed of a dozen yellow-green flowers arranged in broad umbels. They bloom in July to then give way to long, flat fruits. The entire plant is aromatic and has a characteristic odor that is pleasant and penetrating.
Angelica is grown as two different crops: one for harvesting the roots, the other for gathering the seeds. Angelica seeds are harvested like those of dill. When the fruits turn brown, the stems bearing the umbels are cut and then dried in the open air. The harvesting process is repeated several times as the seeds ripen. In the fall, the rhizomes of one-year-old plants are uprooted.
