Description

Aconitum is commonly known as aconite, monkshood, wolf's bane, leopard's bane, mousebane, women's bane, devil's helmet, queen of poisons, or blue rocket. These herbaceous perennial plants are chiefly native to the mountainous parts of the Northern Hemisphere, growing in the moisture-retentive but well-draining soils of mountain meadows. Though grown in many gardens, these plants are extremely poisonous even to the touch, and must be dealt with carefully.

Aconitum are typically thrive in well-drained evenly moist garden soils like the related Hellebores and Delphiniums, and can grow in the shade of trees. Aconitum plants are typically much longer-lived than the closely related Delphinium plants. As with hellebores and some others in the family, they do not like to be moved once established.

All parts of the plant should be handled while wearing protective disposable gloves, and long sleeve clothing.

Type: Hardy perennial 

Height: 3 to 5 feet

Location: Sun or shade

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Seeds per pack: 15 (previously 10). Seeds vary in size slightly.

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous. These seeds and plants should be handled with disposable gloves, as touching this plant can cause illness. Wear long sleeve clothing.

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 2 weeks. They will not grow yet. Then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
