ACONITUM LYCOTONUM NEAPOLITANUM
Tall stems hold dense pyramids of narrow, hooded, ivory-green flowers, which are crowded up the stem. Dark green foliage resembles that of a delphinium, to which it related, and they are less cut than other species. This plant is a superb treasure for part shade, although it is happy in almost any aspect.
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:Wolfsbane, Monkshood, Aconitum lamarckii, Aconitum fallax
