From the family Ranunculaceae and known under its common name Wolfsbane, this hardy perennial can grow up to 1.0m in height. Long-lived clumps produce very dense sprays of pale sulphur yellow hooded flowers in spring and early summer, above attractive, bright green shiny foliage. If dead-headed, flowering will continue into the autumn.

Germination; Best to sow directly. After the first frost of autumn prepare a shady seed bed, weed and add a thick layer of compost. Sow seed 5mm deep and water lightly. Germination takes 4 weeks approx. Thin to 45cm spacing. Mulch around seedlings. Water weekly if there is no rainfall. Sow indoors Jan-Mar. Place seeds in a plastic bag with some moist kitchen towel. Place in the fridge 4°C. for 3 weeks. Remove from fridge and sow 50mm deep into deep potting soil. Keep soil moist. Ideal temp. 13-16°C. Water when the surface of soil looks dry. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle to the garden after danger of frost has passed.
Growing; Aconites can tolerate full sun as long as the soil is kept cool and moist by applying a mulch if needed but generally are easier to grow in partial shade. Slow growing and take a couple of years to reach their full potential. Prefers a humus rich, cool soil but will tolerate any well-drained moist soil. Easy to care for.
Cultivation; These plants are highly toxic. Handle with gloves at all times, avoid any direct skin contact. May self-seed. Division is not required but can be done if you need more plants. Divide in autumn, cut offsets free from the root without damaging the mother plant.
