Aconitum, also known as aconite, monkshood, wolf s bane, leopard s bane, mousebane, women s bane, devil s helmet, Queen of all Poisons, or blue rocket, is a genus of over 250 species of flowering plants belonging to the family Ranunculaceae

Common name: Aconitum napellus
Color: Deep purplish blue
Bloom time: July to August
Height: 2.00 to 4.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

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

Water: medium

Temprature: 55 and 60 degrees.

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • 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.


Special Feature:
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.
Use
Medicinal use:
  • Poison Aconite

Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
for medicinal use, please consult appropriate doctor before use.
