Gardeners' Notes:

Negative Loretta_NJ On Jul 10, 2012, Loretta_NJ from Pequannock, NJ wrote:

I got mine from Annie's Annuals. The leaves would look healthy one day and be full of spots the next. Then the leaf would die off. At first it seemed like it would outgrow it as it kept sending out new healthy growth but eventually the leaf spot took over the stem. The root is still alive but the crown is dead. Not sure if it will ever grow again. It seemed to be most affected after a rain but I would have had to observe it longer to be sure of that and I might not have that chance now.
Otherwise, the new growth was a nice deep color. Older leaves showed green. The leaves were much lacier and smaller than angelica gigas which does very well for me.

Although my Angelica Stricta was planted 2 yrs ago - it never bloomed and became quite invasive. Hard to get it out - very string roots. It would be OK - if you have unlimited space and patience.
