TOXIC–wear gloves when handling fresh plant or roots–do not ingest the plant.
Family: Crowfoot (Ranunculaceae)
Hardy to Zones 3 to 9
(Wolfsbane) Herbaceous perennial native to central Europe. An antique herb. bright purple, with hood-shaped flowers protecting profusely productive nectaries. Plant prefers part to full shade and evenly moist soils. I have mine growing within a few feet of Munger’s Creek, and the display is stunning in season. Sow the seeds in the fall for germination in the spring. Sow in outdoor conditions in the shade, in deep flats, well-screened against birds and mice. In one of our trials, seed sown in August gave partial germination in October, with the remaining seeds germinating in May. We do recognize the requirement for fresh seed and therefore replace with the new harvest yearly.
