Angelica is related to parsley. A biennial, triennial, or even perennial. Not fussy about soils but likes moisture. Mulch is very helpful. Grows more in the northern regions of Europe, but also in the southern latitudes. Propagation is not easy, because germination is elusive. Seed does not always remain fertile for more than one year. Best to sow immediately after the seed sets. Many people cannot propagate it. It has a wonderful aroma. All parts can be used medicinally. An antidote to fear. Traditionally the roots and seeds are the primary medicinals. The stalk can be fermented and candied, or grated and added to breads. (15:49)
