Angelica

Long known as an important herbaceous healer, Angelica dignifies the border with its strongly sculptural presence. Many members of this genus are three-year biennials, and in the first year, a mass of coarse leaves provide lush infill, which softens the spires of spiky perennials. In the second year, strong stalks host bold umbels that command attention in the garden or in an arrangement. If you cut the blooms before the seed sets, you might be rewarded with flowers for three or even four years. Angelica thrives in a moist, well drained spot.

The floriferous namesake of St. Michael the Archangel, who is supposed to have revealed its power to battle the plague, Angelica archangelica’s luxuriant, tropical-looking foliage makes a dramatic entrance each spring as leaves unfurl to a length of 2 to 3 ft. Flower buds of mauve, strikingly set against its deeply divided bright green verdure, herald the imposing lime-tinted white flowers surmounting thick, erect stalks. This Angelica’s aromatic young shoots have long been used as a flavoring in sweet confections.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 5' 0" high x 4' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
