Product information "Aconitum henryi 'Spark'"

Monkshood or summer aconite owes its name to the upper sepals. They jut out like a helmet above the flowers. This plant has a very loose habit and its shoots are slightly arched. The flowers appear in dense panicles and have a vibrant, violet blue colour from early July until well into August. The lush, dark green leaves are serrated and glossy palmate. Since Aconitum henryi was formerly a forest dweller, it also prefers a partially shaded location in gardens with fresh, nutrient-rich soils. It comes into its own the best in natural plantings, in conjunction with goat’s beard, woodland bluebells, bugbane, foxglove and autumn anemones. Similarly, in combination with some grasses, such as tufted hair grass, it is very attractive. But also in partially shaded perennial plantings, as well as in cottage gardens, it should not be missing as a striking autumn bloomer. Moreover, this plant is a particularly valuable perennial used for cutting because it keeps for a very long time in autumn bouquets. But beware: All parts of this plant are very toxic to both humans and animals. It is also important to cut off withered flowers, as the formation of seeds weakens the plant.
