Common Monkshood

Monkshoods' upright stems bear deep violet, hooded flowers from mid- to late summer. They perform best in moist, fertile soil with exposure to full sun, and look particularly attractive in a border. Those monkshood plantings which meet the upper reaches of their height potential - 4 to 5 feet - may need staking. Parents and pet owners be aware: all parts of monkshood are poisonous.
