Monkshood Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows well in full sun, but requires sufficient water. Aconitums grow best where shade is provided in the hot hours of the afternoon. Relatively slow-growing, it won't need to be divided regularly. They are very resistant to pests and diseases. Beware of handling this plant as all parts are highly poisonous.
