Monkshood, Aconitum bicolor


Monkshood, Aconitum bicolor (Aconitum x cammarum (Monkshood))

I put this in last year and it was just a little green thing for that whole season. This year I see that it was spreading its roots, as there were 20-25 flowering cases in a large bush already encroaching on the space of the ligularia. One blossom last year, probably over a hundred this year. Wonderful thing. :-)

Thank you both. :-) It just drifted across the whole beds through the final month of the season. Just a wonder.
