Monks hood - Plant

Note: The image is for reference purpose only.
How can you not fall in love with a perennial that has regal blue spires? And monkshood is that plant. Relatively unknown, it deserves a lot more attention. It produces tall spikes of hooded purple, blue, white, or bicolor blooms in late summer to fall. When not in bloom, its mounds of coarsely lobed foliage look great, too.

Caring for Monks hood

  • Needs cool nights below 70 degrees F. to grow well
  • Cut back stems after flowering to encourage an additional late season bloom.
  • Although plants may be propagated by division, they are often slow to establish and are probably best left undisturbed once planted.

Typical uses of Monks hood

Special features: Monkshood dislikes hot weather, so it's usually not a great choice for gardeners in hot-summer climates.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
