Description

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.

Aconitum napellus is an erect, tuberous-rooted perennial which features dense, terminal racemes (to 8 long) of hooded, deep purplish-blue to violet flowers atop rigid, leafy stems typically growing 2-4 tall. Commonly found in moist pastures and moist mountainous areas of Europe and Asia.

Planting and care

  • 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.

    Monks hood care

    Best grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Soils must not be allowed to dry out, but need sufficient drainage to prevent wet conditions from developing. Best in full sun in cool summer climates.
