Angelica sylvestris - Wild Angelica

Wild angelica is very common: it is a close relative of the garden angelica, angelica archangelica. It tends to grow in damp wood edges, with meadowsweet and the combination is so common it is used for a type of habitat - British NVC Community M27 (Filipendula ulmaria Angelica sylvestris mire).

As with many wild food plants, the old leaves are tough and not very palateabe but the young leaves, when still curled-up, can be added to salads.

The second photo illustrates these leaves.
