We like monkshood in general but this one stands out in more than one way. Besides the height, the numerous flowers on much braced stems are a deep violet. Looks amazing next to apricot or orange Alstroemerias. Prefers a moist soil, especially in sun. Blooms between the early (A. napellus) and the late (A. arendsii) monkshoods. Great cut-flower. Shipped in pots April through August. Please note that later in the season we'll have to trim them to fit the box.
