Autumn monkshood is a showy perennial flowering for late summer and autumn. It produces erect racemes of large, 6-7 cm tall flowers of deep indigo blue flowers from September till October. They appear along sturdy stems that grow just over a meter tall. The wise thing about this monkhood is that even though the blooming time is very late in the season, it offers something more to gain your attention early in the season: very attractive, deeply cut, dark green, glossy leaves. Monkshood is a popular cut flower.

Monkshood is used especially in Chinese medicine, yet some caution is advised when working with the plant as all its parts are highly poisonous. Wearing gloves is suggested.

It grows in almost any moist soil. It likes full sun or part shade. Fertilizing is not necessary but may enhance flowering – producing shorter racemes just below the main one. Fully hardy to about -40°C (USDA zone 3).
