Aconitum monkshood white. Poisonous plant.
At first glance I find it a somewhat boring plant. Still, I really want it in my photo collection. The fact is that monkshood played a beautiful and lurid role in much of history. The plant is alsno known as wolfsbane, leopard’s bane, mousebane, women’s bane, devil’s helmet, queen of poisons The monkshood used to be given to those sentenced to death but was also used as a medicine.
