Aconitum ‘Bressingham Spire’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.015.280

Monkshood are wonderful, old fashioned perennials, perfectly suited for border plantings. This selection has a neat, compact habit, bearing spikes of deep violet-blue flowers on good strong stems that should not require staking. Excellent for cutting. Useful both in the garden as well as in mixed containers. Plants prefer a site that will not dry out, away from thirsty tree roots. In hot summer areas this will need protection from afternoon sun. Easily divided every 3 to 4 years, in early spring. CAUTION: toxic if eaten/harmful via skin.
