Green-lipped, palest yellow flowers open in early summer on this rarely-seen monkshood flower. A cousin to the more common Blue Monkshood, this species is not commonly seen in gardens, where it will form an upright clump of deeply-cut green leaves preferring a site that will not dry out. It also makes an outstanding cut flower. Like all monkshoods, all parts of this plant are poisonous.
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them 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 may wait for spring before emerging whenever sown. Do not use artificial heat to try to germinate them as it will simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan.
