Angelica archangelica

This Angelica was planted last year at my boyfriend's brewery, and then, as a biennial, was just a really pretty, leafy specimen... This year it bloomed! In complete shade none-the-less!

Angelica is used to flavor liquors and is taken as an herbal immune stimulant. I'll have to collect those seeds! In this picture is also Abutilon "flowering maple" on the left and Coleus "Inky Fingers" on the right...

Zinnia self seeded from last year! I think they can't help but grow at the brewery because Shane loves them so much!

Okay, I'm amazed - Angelica is used to flavor drinks? So what's the flavor like? I'm so intrigued!
