01 Oct The Garden Bouquet of the Week
Fall monkshood is a very long lasting perennial that struts its stuff in late September and October. Related to Delphiniums but much easier to grow, Aconitum arendsii grows 5-6′ tall and lasts for a week as a cut flower in a vase. This photo was takenMonday morning in the mist. Monkshood has spread throughout my borders; this one is growing under the canopy of a pear tree. Yes, they will grow in partial shade!
