Planting & Care
The best way to grow monkshood is to plant it in soil similar to what it grows in when wild, that is, average and moist, but well drained.
If the soil is too rich, the plants will become leggy and if it holds too much water, the fragile roots will drown.
Sunlight: Full Sun
Soil: well-drained soil
Temprature: 55 and 60 degrees.
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- All members of the genus Aconitum, monkshood included, are poisonous.
- In fact, wolfsbane, that other common name, came about from using the ground root of perennial monkshood in meaty bait to kill the once hated animals.
In the St. Louis area, this plant needs consistently moist soils and may be best grown in moist woodland areas, along streams or ponds, or on the periphery of bog or water gardens. Will grow in borders as long as the soil moisture requirements can be met.
- Poison Aconite
- The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
for medicinal use, please consult appropriate doctor before use.
