Pure white flowers with a narrow, blue edge bloom over deeply cut, glossy, dark green foliage.
The upper sepal of the flower bears a striking resemblance to the cloth hood worn by a medieval monk, thus the common name "Monkshood".
Grows well in full sun but requires sufficient water. Aconitums grow best where shade is provided in the hot hours of the afternoon. Relatively slow- growing, it won't need to be divided regularly. They are very resistant to pests and diseases. Beware of handling this plant as all parts are highly poisonous.
