Archangelica

 

a genus of biennial or perennial plants of the Umbelliferae family, sometimes included in the genus Angelica.

There are about 12 species of Archangelica in the temperate zone of the northern hemisphere. Eight or nine species are found in the USSR; most well known is the garden angelica (A. officinalis), which grows in moist areas—chiefly in the forest and forest-steppe zones of the European part of Russia and in Western Siberia. Members of the genus are good nectar plants. The roots and rhizomes contain coumarins, a number of acids, and tannic substances. The plants are used in making candies and liqueurs. The young shoots are edible.
