Description

Aconitum is commonly known as aconite, monkshood, wolf's bane, leopard's bane, mousebane, women's bane, devil's helmet, or queen of poisons. 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 cultivated in gardens. They 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.

Type: Hardy perennial

Seeds per pack: 5

Height: 3 feet, 90 cm

Location: Sun or shade

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Note: This plant family is known to have toxicity. The ingestion of these seeds or this plant can cause serious illness or death. These seeds and plants should be handled with disposable gloves and long-sleeved clothing, as touching this plant can cause illness. Wear long sleeve clothing.

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Start indoors. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 4 weeks. This helps break the phytohormones which inhibit germination. They will not grow yet. Then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 80 days. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15-18C, 59-68F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 30-60 days after the warming period, though some can take longer.
