Aconitum napellus, Monkshood
Aconitum napellus, Monkshood
Although this is grown widely as a garden plant, like the Foxglove, this is an extremely poisonous species.
The poison, aconitine, is an Alkaloid Toxin, and has been linked to murders and assassinations throughout history.
The stunning blue flowers are a beautiful addition to the Cottage Garden palette as long as young children are kept well away!
