Angelica archangelica, a hardy perennial, is a majestic plant that deserves a prominent position at the back of a border or in a wild part of the garden. It loves woodland conditions, with plenty of moist shade, preferably near rivers or deposits of water. In their first year, plants produce leafy bushes, and then die down and disappear completely from sight in winter in their second year they reach full size.

Angelica makes an attractive backdrop for other plants, not only because of its height. Angelica's bright green leaves, made up of three finely toothed leaflets, and its stems also are a pleasing contrast in the garden. Angelica's long sturdy hollow stems are ribbed. Delicately coloured, they start out purple at the base and lighten to a pale yellow green.

All parts of the aromatic plant have culinary or medicinal uses, but it is best known for its candied stems, used as a cake decoration. The stems and seeds for use in confectionery and flavouring and the preparation of liqueurs. (e.g. Chartreuse, Bénédictine, Vermouth and Dubonnet). Angelica seeds and angelica roots are sometimes used in making absinthe.
