Angelica cartilaginomarginata is a biennial plant growing 50 - 150cm tall with usually only one branched stem[
The plant is harvested from the wild for local use as a food and a medicine.
All members of this genus contain furocoumarins, which increase skin sensitivity to sunlight and may cause dermatitis[
E. Asia - China, Japan, Korea, Manchuria.
A very rare plant in the wild, found in damp habitats in central and southern Japan[
]. Slopes, shrubby thickets or forest edges; at elevations from 300 - 1,000 metres[
Angelica cartilaginomarginata is found in eastern China in areas where the hardyness zone can vary from 4 - 9.
Species in this genus generally grow best in a deep moist fertile soil in dappled shade or full sun[
Plants are reliably perennial if they are prevented from setting seed[
Leaves - cooked[
The roots have reputed medicinal value[
Seed - best sown in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe since the seed only has a short viability[
]. Seed can also be sown in the spring, though germination rates will be lower. It requires light for germination[
]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a cold frame for their first winter, planting them out into their permanent positions in the spring.
The seed can also be sow in situ as soon as it is ripe.
