Angelica stricta purpurea (Angelica sylvestris purpurea) | ‘Purpurea’ Purple Angelica
Purple Angelica, also known as Korean Angelica is a biennial plant with its umbel shaped flowers putting on a big show during the second year, then seeding and dying.
Its purple-black foliage is beautiful and luxurious, making it stand out like royalty in the garden.
Angelicas are loved by butterflies and various other pollinators, too! Easy to grow and can bloom first year if planted early enough in the spring. Rich soil is best. Self-sows readily.
Harvested in autumn 2020.
Please note: It is recommended to plant these seeds as soon as possible due to their short shelf life. These seeds do best when they are overwintered outdoors for one or sometimes even two winters. Seedlings will begin to appear in early sring. If started indoor cold-stratification will be required like many umbel-type plants.
