Nevada, and small adjoining areas of California, Idaho and Utah
Streambanks in mountainous regions, between 7,000 and 10,500 feet
Oblong in outline, up to 16 inches long, with entire or sparsely-toothed leaflets
Angelica kingii is found in a fairly specific habitat of wooded streambanks in the subalpine zone, in scattered mountainous regions of the Great Basin, mainly in Nevada, and the White Mountains of California.
Basal leaves are pinnately divided into closely-spaced lance-shaped leaflets, regular in shape, while upper stem leaves are divided into fewer, narrower leaflets, more widely-spaced. Leaf bases are enclosed by sheaths.
There are no bracts at the base of the inflorescence. Rays, numbering between 7 and 14, are unequal in length, angled above the plane, and terminate in tight, non-overlapping clusters of tiny white flowers. Pedicels and rays have webbed bases.
