A number of years ago I discovered this wonderful plant on a trip to Heronswood Nursery in Washington State. At that time ‘Vicars Mead’ was not available in our area. I found a small specialty grower who was growing it and now we have made it available in our Garden Centre. Angelica ‘Vicars Mead’ is a fully hardy biennial that grows up to1.4 m Small umbells of pale creamy white flowers appear in summer in it’s second year of growth. The foliage and stems are a deep purple/maroon. ‘Vicars Mead’ is suitable for growing in moist soil, Bog, Heavy clay, Alkaline and Acidic soil in full to part sun. It also adds a wonderful vertical accent to your garden.
