Aconitum, Monkshood, wolfsbane - by any name you choose, it looks as sweet!

Aconitum is remarkable for many reasons, but not least for the sheer amount of names it carries! Aconite, monkshood, wolf's bane, leopard's bane, Devil's helmet and blue rocket are all names which have been given to this ancient plant

Whatever you call it, Aconitum is deeply steeped in history and folklore. It's had a huge amount of uses as well as being admired for its pretty blue flowers; as everything from a poison to a cure. As well as being referenced in literature from Shakespeare to Solzhenitsyn, the Ainu hunters in Japan used it to poison arrows for hunting bears! Tiny prepared doses of this flower have significant uses in traditional herbal medicine all across Asia.

But of course here at Clare where there aren't many bears to hunt, we use this flower entirely for its ornamental value! The delicate hanging purple bells of this flower give it a wild, hedgerow feel. Receiving a bouquet containing aconitum will always give the recipient a wonderful sense of being a part of the natural world.

When you send or receive a bouquet with aconitum from Clare Florist, then you're guaranteed great service. Not only do we offer free next day delivery across the UK, but we take huge pride in arranging our bouquets so that when they arrive, they take your breath away!
