Plant details

An unusual and eye-catching variety of aconitum with glossy, dark green, lobed leaves. In mid to late summer, attractive loose panicles of violet-blue and white flowers are borne. A compact, tuberous perennial, plants can grow up to 120cm in height, and may require staking. Fully hardy, they prefer a sunny position but will tolerate some shade, which can enhance the colour of the blooms. Plants grow best in fertile, well-drained soil and should not be allowed to dry out between waterings.
