To our next plant here is called Monkshood that is the common name or Aconitum and that particular variety here is cloudy and of course being a meteorologist is to have type of plant with the weather team in my garden. You can see that this has these little hooded flowers and this will be little floweret’s here.
I really love this color, it is like light blue to a purple, this will continue flowering just as long as you have temperatures, but do not go much below 28 or 29 degrees. This particular plant started blooming sometime during the middle of September and this will continue right through until we get temperatures in the lower 30s, even upper 20s this can handle.
I like the plant because of the stature of it, what I mean by that is it just sort of stand so strong and you want plants like these in your garden that sort of mix with the grasses which, you know you got a slight breeze when grass starts to move. This guy really does not move, he will take you know a 20 mile an hour wind before you can see any movement and we put him in the back of the Japanese umbrella pine.
Again, it sort of mix textures here so the Japanese umbrella pine looking a lot different than a particular Monkshood plants here, and that is what you want to be doing in the garden. You want to be mixing color, texture and also form and we have done that here in this particular area.
