Angelica Archangelica

This gallery contains 2 photos. Photographed on June 7 in the Physick section of the UBC Botanical Garden. At first glance, Angelica Archangelica looks like giant heads of broccoflower. Its roots and stems are edible, although poisonous/toxic lookalikes/imposters do exist.


Here’s a wasp harvesting some nectar from angelica archangelica. The interpretive sign for this reads “A healing herb said to bloom on the feast day of St. Michael, the Archangel, May 8.”
