Re: Angelica question

Angelica archangelica maybe?

 - Musky smelling
 - reaches a height of 8ft
 - large glossy leaves
 - huge lime-green flowerheads resembling cheerleader's pom-poms
 - botanically biennial; growing first year, flowering the second then 
 - self sows freely

Candied stems  were the traditional green decorations on  cakes.
Young stems can be cooked with rhubarb and soft fruits to sweeten the tartness.
Dried leaves make soothing tean and a good ase for pot pourri.
