Monkshood- Aconitum carmichaelii 'Arendsii'

This is a great plant for this time of the year, flowering from early to mid Autumn, large panicles of deep blue flowers. Not everyone likes to grow Monkshood as all parts of this plant are toxic and can cause an allergic skin reaction, not recommended if you have children and unfortunately not advisable for flower arranging. However the bees love them and as they are left in the garden, they make a wonderful display.
