Description

This is a climbing variety of the popular Monk's Hood flowers! The flowers are a stunning deep red-purple!

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 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.

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 200 cm

Location: Sun or part shade

Hardiness zones: 5-8

Seeds per pack: 5

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are very 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 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.
