Angelica pubescens / Shishiudo シシウド


Angelica pubescens is a perennial herb found in grasslands in mountainous regions; stems are thick and pilose, 1-2m in height and branch on upper portions. Leave are of alternate phyllotaxis; each big, bi- to tri-pinnate compound, leaflets are in the shape of a long oblong, 5-10cm in length, and margins serrated. Branch tops emerge large compound umbels and densely set many white flowers in them - it is as if fireworks. Bloom time: August-November
