Angelica atropurpurea / Purplestem Angelica


A truly giant herb of fertile swamps and riverbanks. Purplestem Angelica has incredible, spherical blooms that attract numerous pollinators.

Purplestem Angelica has an interesting life cycle, dying after seeding in great exuberance in its second or third year.

A great plant to out-compete weeds in a wet meadow, stand strong in a border or edge, or keep company with other meadow giants like Joe Pye Weed.
