Spectacular dark blue hooded flowers on spikes (similar to Delphinium in form) characterize this unique perennial that blooms in early fall. An excellent cut flower that provides fall color in the part shade garden, Aconitum has gorgeous glossy lobed green leaves. Blooming to a height of 3', it is happiest in a cool, moist well-drained area with rich soil in light shade. Try it in the back of the border or as a specimen where 3 to 5 in a clump will give quite a show. Because its lovely flowers persist well into fall, try it in combination with Anemones and Wood Asters for a bright look.
