Aconitum "Sparks Variety" (Aconitum henryi)

I'm bowled over by the colour of this one this year! And, it stands about five feet tall too!

I was still expecting some sign by now - it didn't bloom last year either.

that's odd, is it a young plant?

It's a good sized plant in its second season with me.......
