Angelica nubigena - WJC13763

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Having already encountered A. cyclocarpa in the lower valley we felt extremely lucky to find this smaller species seeding at a mere 1.2m tall (recorded to 2m) at almost 4,000m in north-eastern Himalayas. The sturdy purple stems were topped by many very wide umbels composed of 50-rayed flat topped umbells of 30 pale yellow flowers, resulting in the disc-shaped seed we were collecting. The basal leaves which were dormant at that time, arise from long thick rhizomes, they are recorded as being 40cm wide ovate in outline, 3-pinnately divided deeply lobed and serrated, with inconspicuously winged petioles. Easily grown in any type of drained fertile soil in sun or part shade. Yet to be seen how perennial this species remains in cultivation.
