Monkshood often reminds gardeners of delphiniums since the rich blue color is the same. But its much easier to grow. First of all, Monkshood is plenty tall, but shorter than the towering delphiniums that always need staking. This one stands on its own. And its not as brittle as a delphinium, so does a simpler job of adding tall blue flower spikes to your late spring garden. The roots are poisonous.

Comments about American Meadows Autumn Monkshood Arendsii:

I put one in front so I could see it. One in back so bears would maybe stay out of my garden and one at side of house that delights me cause this will be its first time to bloom.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
