Aconitum episcopale - select Aconitum episcopale - select

This is a clone of this climbing Monkshood species which initialy caught our eye as being subtly different than the other form we offer.  This has some yellowish mottling to the foliage and appeals to our geeky natures as being a little different.  Same light blue flowers as the typical form.  This will climb to 10' or more and drape itself upon a handy shrub or trellis.
