A colour variation on the more familiar Blue Monkshood, this is not as commonly seen in gardens. Plants form an upright clump of deeply-cut green leaves, bearing spikes of blue-edged white flowers in mid-summer. May need staking in early summer. An outstanding cut flower. Plants prefer a site that will not dry out, away from thirsty tree roots. In hot summer areas this will need protection from afternoon sun. Easily divided every 3 to 4 years, in early spring.
CAUTION: toxic if eaten/harmful via skin.
