Angelica archangelica, commonly known as garden angelica or wild celery, is a biennial herb that is native to northern and central Europe, as well as parts of Asia. It belongs to the Apiaceae family and can grow up to six feet tall.

The plant has a stout, hollow stem that is grooved and purple-tinged, with large, bright green leaves that are divided into leaflets. In the second year of growth, Angelica archangelica produces large, umbrella-shaped clusters of greenish-yellow flowers, followed by round, dry fruits containing the plant's seeds.

Angelica archangelica has a long history of use in traditional medicine and culinary arts. The plant is known for its aromatic, musky scent and has been used to treat a variety of ailments, including digestive disorders, respiratory infections, and anxiety.

In addition to its medicinal uses, Angelica archangelica is also used in culinary applications. The plant's leaves, stems, and seeds have a sweet, slightly bitter taste and can be used to flavor food and beverages. The plant is often used in Scandinavian cuisine, particularly in Sweden, where it is a key ingredient in traditional dishes such as gravlax, a type of cured salmon.

Angelica archangelica is also valued for its ornamental qualities, with its tall, stately growth and large, striking flowers adding a dramatic presence to garden landscapes. It prefers partial shade and moist, fertile soil and can be grown from seed or propagated through root cuttings.
