Flowers: July-August.  Plant in part shade.  HxS 1.25mx45cm

This Monkshood provides good contrast to the midnight-blue forms, carrying tall spires of pale silvery-blue flowers above finely divided foliage.  The effect is somewhat similar to Delphinium.  Excellent as a cut flower.  All Monkshood prefer rich, moist soil and perform best in cool areas of the garden.  They rarely need to be staked despite their architectural presence. CAUTION: toxic if eaten/harmful via skin.  Very good in clay soils.  Hardiness rating H7. Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care & Maintenance.

Cut down old stems in autumn or early spring.  Best propagated by division, but you might get some interesting colour breaks if you sow seed.
