Jump to: navigation, search
Monkshood (Aconitum delphiniifolium): Uncommon perennial herb most often found in subalpine meadows, but also along creeksides, and rarely forest openings. Deeply lobed palmate leaves and showy helmet-shaped blue to purple flowers make this poisonous plant quite distinctive.

Collections from cross the region in ARCTOS, though records appear to be lacking from the central mainland and inner islands (it's possible there are addition non-georeferenced records fromm those areas).
