Aconitum cammarum 'Bicolor'

Monkshood

An exciting bicolor monkshood, this selection produces loose panicles of flowers on widely branched, arching stems. Each individual flower is shaped like a little helmet or hood; the hood is pale blue with white streaks and the lower petals are intense blue. They contrast nicely against the deeply cut, glossy, dark green foliage.
