Aconitum carmichaelii ‘Arendsii’

Aconitum carmichaelii ‘Arendsii’
Height: 3'
Light: Full Sun-Part Shade
Flowering Time: Fall

Monkshood are wonderful old-fashioned perennials,
perfectly suited for large border plantings. This late-flowering
selection has incredible, tall spikes of deep violet-blue,
hooded flowers, a total surprise when they appear in mid-autumn.
Attractive dark green, glossy foliage. Stems may need to be staked
in summer. An outstanding cut flower. Plants prefer a site that will
not dry out in summer, away from thirsty tree roots. Easily divided
every 3 to 4 years, in early spring. CAUTION: toxic if eaten
