A. gigas is often listed as a perennial, but it  tends to be
monocarpic; will seed around if it's happy.  I think of all Angelicas
as biennials that take more than one year to flower and set seed...at
least A. archangelica takes at least  2 years and sometimes 3 to
flower from seed for me; once it flowers and sets seed, it dies...so
instead of being a biennial (as that one is always listed), I think
it's also monocarpic.

I have read, but not tried this, that if you remove the flowers
before they set seed, you can keep a plant going for
years...hmmmm...may try that as I have 3 or 4 now; see what happens.
