Primrose-yellow, darker-anthered "monkshood" flowers open on short stems on this rare gem from the mountain slopes and forest margins of China, Korea and Eastern Russia. Very doubtfully in cultivation, it is a far superior plant to its relative, Aconitum lycoctonum, being shorter and more compact in stature, as well as having flowers which are outward-facing rather than pendent.
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.
