Angelica tomentosa producing another stem


The Angelica tomentosa "Wooly Angelica" is still doing well, growing slowly but surely.

You can see a new stem growing at the base of the plant, about to unfurl another set of leaves.

It is growing in a partially shaded area in one of the patio beds.

This California native can grow up to three to five feet tall.

The flowers that bloom in summer months provide habitat for many native beneficial insects.

The main reason why I planted it is because the leaves provide food for the Anise Swallowtail butterfly larvae. Let's see what happens this summer.
