Out of focus

I had plans to do some planting at my place today, but having Aconitum fischeri in a pot as the perfect subject to be swinged around for a good picture, put me out of focus. Can you blame me?

Aconitum fischeri

Aconitum fischeri – a super hardy Aconitum (from Siberia, Korea) with huge, dark blue flowers and a nice, upright habit. In the Display Garden at Lost Horizons it flowers well into October every year.

My ‘Perfect Wave’ (Arisaema consanguineum) was watching patiently as always; she knows how it goes. It will get planted somewhere, eventually…

    The only monkshood I have is Aconitum carmichaelii ‘Barker’s Variety’, which is similar to yours. It is the last, the very last, thing to flower each year and is often still blooming when the snow flies.

    I just got my LH Perfect Wave seedling planted a week ago. Hope he gets settled in for the winter and sleeps tight.

      Some give A. carmichaelii as a syn. of A. fischeri, although in Flora of China they are described as distinct species. What’s what in the nursery trade would be hard to say.
      All Arisaemas are preparing for the long sleep now – hope it will be a good one!
