Aconitum Monkshood

Monkshood has been in cultivation for a very long time. In fact, herbalists were writing about its toxic properties as early as the sixteenth century. It is a lovely addition to the back of the perennial border but all parts of the plant are extremely poisonous. Be sure to wash your hands after pruning plants.
