Native to central China and sometimes commonly called autumn-flowering monkshood because of its late summer to early fall bloom. It blooms later than most other species of Aconitum. It is an erect, tuberous-rooted perennial that features dense panicles (to 8” long) of hooded flowers atop rigid, leafy stems typically growing 2-3’ tall. All parts of the plant (especially the roots and seeds) are extremely poisonous. It is best grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade.
