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.

Description for Monks hood

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.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Aconitum napellus, monkshood Deep purplish blue July to August 2.00 to 4.00 feet easy to grow

Planting and 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.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun well-drained soil medium 55 and 60 degrees. Apply any organic fertilizer

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.
