Aconitum Bicolor  Aconitum fisheri
Aconitum are a wonderful addition to shade or part shade areas with reasonably rich soil. The Sparks variety grows to over 150cm or 5', and is almost like a small vine. The rich blue colour is welcome in contrast to the shiny deep green foliage. Aconitum ficherii is always one of the last to bloom, usually in early October. Combining Aconitum with Ligularia 'The Rocket' or Anemone japonica 'Robistima" or of course Hosta.
Aconitum (like many other plants) is very poisonous to dogs and should not be used where dogs are un-supervised.
