Collected originally on our 2004 seed expedition to the Russian island of Sakhalin, ("Land of the Giants") this unusually large, and very lovely plant bears substantial rosettes of elegant ferny leaves from which arise tall, strong stems bearing whorls of sizeable, deepest blue "Monkshood" flowers.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months, sometimes up to a year in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner and do not discard. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate but do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter even deeper dormancy.
Common name:Monkshood, Devil's Helmet, Aconitum yezoense
