Acontium/Monkshood

12.95

CONDITIONS: Full Sun to Partial Shade
WATER: likes moist, well-drained soil.
BLOOM TIME: Fall, actually, which is unusual.
SIZE: 2'-4' tall
THREE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT: It is also called Wolf's bane maybe because it is actually toxic, so if you have kids, pets, or husbands that eat plants, maybe this is not your pick. It has candle-like blue spires that bloom in the fall. Also, it is picky and it doesn't like dry soil nor does it like to be moved. But it's worth putting up with this for Fall color, and deer hate it.
LOOKS GREAT WITH: Cimicifuga, Astilbe, Calamagrostis
