Aconitum napellus

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

In forum: Aconitum napellus

Monk's-hood makes a magnificent garden plant. Its flowers are visited by bumble bees. Care is needed, however, as all parts of the plant are very poisonous and contact with the foliage may cause skin irritation in some people. It is also called wolf-bane, perhaps because medieval hunters used it as a poison.
