A relatively compact alpine species with deeply cut, blue-green foliage and orange-yellow, and occasionally blue flowers, from July to September. Its native range is widespread, but mainly in the European mountains, such as the Alps and the Carpathians, and the northern parts of Asia but like many aconitum species, it has great variability, due to isolation and hybridisation.
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them in a cool place onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and as a rule they wait for spring before emerging whenever they are sown. do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan, no matter how long it takes for germination to occur.
