A colour variation on the more familiar Blue Monkshood, this is not as commonly seen in gardens. Plants form an upright clump of deeply-cut green leaves, bearing spikes of creamy-white flowers in early to mid-summer. Compact habit, making it useful both in the border or in mixed containers. An outstanding cut flower. Plants prefer a site that will not dry out, away from thirsty tree roots. In hot summer areas this will need protection from afternoon sun. Easily divided every 3 to 4 years, in early spring. CAUTION: toxic if eaten/harmful via skin.
