Aconitum (Monkshoot) & Delphinium (Larkspur)

« Previous  1 2 Next » 
Aconitum or Monkshoot have a perennial rootstock from which emerge several, very ornamental flower stalks above usually strongly divided, rather large leaves. Most species are native to slightly moist spots in full sun to partially shaded places throughout Europe extending eastwards to Japan. Very easy and free flowering in cultivation, excellent cut flowers.
Delphinium or Larkspur are closely related to Monkshoots (Aconitum spp.). The genus covers annuals as well as biannual and perennial species with sometimes very tall, most ornamental flower spikes above a basal rosette of divided leaves. Easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot. The tall species give excellent cut flowers.
Sow seeds flat in any humus rich, well drained soil from early autumn to late spring. Keep pots in a partially shaded spot outside. Seeds need a cooling period of several months prior to germination. If they are sowed too late, they may take another winter before they will germinate in following spring. Turn pots to full sun after germination will have occured in mid spring. Keep soil only slightly moist. Transplant dormant rhizomes or rootstock from late summer to mid autumn. Aconitum and Delphinium start to flower usually within 2 to 3 years after sowing and most species are very long-lived and floriferous perennials.

Note: All parts are poisonous if ingested !
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
