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 sizable rounded mound of this Angelica‘s lustrous dark green foliage looks like a parsley plant on steroids. Endemic to New Zealand, its copious deeply fingered leaves offer handsome deer resistant support to the fanciful and fragrant snowy umbels that crown strong stalks. Growing
as an undemanding somewhat short-lived perennial, but offering up seedlings as a consolation, Angelica pachycarpa‘s bold leaves bring fantastic architecture to a good-sized con-
tainer or the border, especially when grouped with
Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

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. Digging Dog's Early August 2017 Newsletter Link
