Monkshood – last garden flower of the season

Last garden flowers of the year

You can get aconitum that blooms in different seasons but my earlier-flowering versions have not survived.  This one has always done well and gets bigger each year.  It is the last plant to flower in my garden. Its genus is Aconitum and it has a deadly poisonous neurotoxin, especially the roots, so don’t let kids play near it.
