About plant names...

Angelica is a native of Spain and western Portugal, now naturalized in New Zealand, and not found in the wild in North America.

Identification: Plants form neat mounds about 3' (91 cm) around. Sometimes described as a biennial or as a “short-lived perennial,” other sources describe it as perennial. Leaves are jade green and glossy, closely connected to their stems. Flowers are large, tight umbels 4-8" (10-20 cm) across. Fruits up to ⅜" (1.2 cm) long are brown with lighter colored wings.
