Angelica archangelica is a superb plant for the back of a border. I’ve found this short-lived perennial grows well on almost any soil and in any situation – from an area that basks in bright sunshine to dappled shade and shade. I’d advise sowing many more Angelica archangelica seeds than you think you need, as not all the seeds will germinate and any unwanted plants can be removed.
