Hairy Angelica, Angelica venenosa Is Herbaceous Perennial has A Wide Range Of Uses, From Ornamental To Herbal

The Hairy Angelica is a herbaceous perennial and a member of the parsley family, Apiaceae, which also includes celery, Queen Anne's lace, and poison hemlock.  Since they are native to most Eastern US, the Hairy Angelica's range spans Massachusetts to Minnesota, south to Florida, Mississippi, and Arkansas. It grows in open woods, clearings, meadows, and glades. 

The roots of the Hairy Angelica are long, spindle-shaped, thick, and fleshy, weighing as much as three pounds, and produce many long, descending rootlets. The hollow stems grow to about four to six feet high, and the foliage grows from long, hollow footstalks, usually three feet in length and reddish-purple at the base. The bright green leaves have serrated patterns cut into their surface, composed of numerous small leaflets separated into three principal groups, each of which subdivides into three lesser groups. The Angelica leaflets have finely-toothed or serrated edges, and the numerous florets, which appear yellowish or greenish, clump into large, globular umbels. They blossom in midsummer, succeeded by pale yellow, oblong fruits that lengthen when ripe. These aromatic, sweet-tasting fruits have membraneous edges, flattened on one side and convex on the other, and each bears three prominent ribs. The fresh root has a yellowish-grey epidermis and yields honey-colored juice, which holds all the aromatic properties of the plant. It is a valuable agent for feverish conditions, acting as a diaphoretic.

In the autumn, one can sow the seeds where the plants are to remain, or preferably in a nursery bed, which as a rule will not need protection during the winter.

Hairy Angelica-Angelica venenosa Thrives Best In Wet Soil, But It Is Hardy Enough To Tolerate Extreme Environments

Start with planting the Hairy Angelica in deep, moist, and loamy soil in a shady position, as the plant thrives best in damp soil and prefers growing near running water. Although the natural habitat is in wet soil and open quarters, it can withstand adverse environments and even endure severe winter frost without much issue. Ample shade from deciduous trees helps the Hairy Angelica develop and flower, as the shady gives it the warmth and dryness like that of a typical summer season in the surface soil. However, such conditions are allowable when Angelica is grown merely as an ornamental plant. One must give it the best treatment regarding suitable soil and situation when grown for its use commercially. Insects and garden pests do not attack the plant with much avidity: its worst enemy is a small two-winged fly, of which the larvae are leafminers, resembling those of the celery plant spinach leaf.
