Favourite Flower Friday

purple angelica

I’ve wanted to grow this lovely umbellifer for years, and have had this particular plant in my garden for 18 months before it has finally produced flowers.

Unfortunately the effect is somewhat spoiled by the swarms of young wasps that have been crawling all over it.

At least there will be lots of seeds for me to sow as soon as they are ripe, and enough to gather for our Cottage Garden Society’s annual seed exchange too.
