This perennial in our garden, has regal blue spires and is flowering profusely now.
It is a relatively unknown plant and deserves a lot more attention as it is very pretty. It produces tall spikes of hooded purple, blue, white, or bicolor blooms in late summer depending on your colour choice and we only have blue plants. All parts of monkhood are poisonous.
Plants grow best in partial shade and Monkshood dislikes hot weather, so it's usually not a great choice for gardeners with hot summer climates but suits our growing situation on Skye very well!
