This rare and luscious parchment white form of Aconitum septentrionale is a superb variety with an erect bushy habit bearing clusters of ivory white hooded flowers on branching stems, with deeply fingered dark green glossy leaves which appear in early spring. It grows best in fertile, well-drained soil but should not be allowed to dry out if possible. Few seeds available.
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 sometimes 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.
