Angelica

Big bold umbel. Similar to Heracleum but smaller & neater leaf. Preferred larval host plant (over the weedy fennel & dill, also over lomatium) by anise swallowtail butterflies. The roots and seeds can be used to treat upset stomach. This woodland Angelica grows 2-6 feet tall with silvery foliage and a bold wooly blossom like a white starburst. It thrives in dappled shade and appreciates regular irrigation. The genus Angelica (approx. 50 spp.) is prized for its medicinal qualities; the root was an important ingredient in absinthe, for example, and was used by many Native American tribes for ritual purposes.
