Leaflets equal, ovate-lanceolate, serrate. Has a smooth stem six inches high; it is perennial, and very common in moist woods and hedges by the sides of rivers, flowering in July and August. — This herb yields a good yellow dye, and may be safely used as a medicine instead of the garden angelica; but as it only possesses its virtues in an inferior degree, it has been long neglected.
