In The Garden - Angelica
Angelica Archangelica is a biennial (2 year plant) that grows between 5 to 7 feet tall. In the second year it will flower with these large seed heads and the stalks that go off to the sides with slightly smaller seed heads on them. It can easily look like a person/plant. The colonists felt that Angelica offered the protection of the Angels to their homestead and would plant this stately herb at the entrance to the garden.
