Aconitum napellus 'Rubellum' (Monkshood) is a spectacular plant for the middle or the back of the border, with graceful spires of pink hood shaped flowers (hence the name 'monkshood') from mid-summer on above attractive finely cut leaves. The height is about 0.75 to 1 metre.
This plant will grow in any reasonable soil, in full sun or partial shade. It is reliably 'perennial' and does not usually suffer from pests or diseases. Where delphiniums will not survive, monkshood is usually an extremely good substitute.
