NEW FOR 2022! The varietal name here is an interpretation of the species name, giving an accurate sense of this plant’s bold appearance emerging from a border. A big presence, in sight and smell, and the sound of insect pollinators. An Umbelliferous native from northern Europe also called Norwegian, Finnish, and Russian angelica, among other locality names (everyone is happy to claim this species). Used as flavoring, food, medicine, beneficial insectary, and landscaping statement. Uniquely fragrant, without anise overtones, an important ingredient in gin and many cordials. Plants are biennial (sometimes perennial) in zones 4-9, forming giant rosettes of 2-3’ leaves the first summer, then putting up 6-8’ flowering stems the following year. Likes moist soil and partial shade (will grow in full sun if watered), can be naturalized into hedgerows and alongside trees. Space 1-3’ apart by direct seeding or transplanting. Seed should be impressed into moist soil without complete coverage (light is necessary for germination), allowing for 3 weeks of daily temperature fluctuations (getting below 40) before bringing into the greenhouse for germination, or expected outdoor temps reaching the 60s.
