SKU: AM014414
per Bag of 3
No longer available this season.
Monkshood, also known as Wolfsbane, puts on tall, beautiful spikes of bloom in late spring. Each deep-violet flower is shaped like hood or cowl, giving rise to the common name. Very showy and tolerant of both deer and bunnies, it's no wonder this gorgeous flower has been popular in gardens since medieval times. (Aconitum napellus)
