Angelica is a tall striking bushy shrub with glossy green leaves that produces attractive umbels of pale yellow-green flowers during early summer. The hollow stalks are ribbed, starting out purple at the base and lighten to pale yellow-green. The stalks are edible with a taste similar to that of celery, only sweeter. Angelica has a long history of cultivation for use as a medicine, flavoring agent and vegetable. Angelica means "Angel" and suggests divine healing power!
