Aconitum kirinense
« on: November 08, 2015, 05:26:28 PM »
I'm not sure which thread would be best for these pictures, but perhaps Maggi can move this if needed. :)

I sent seeds of Aconitum kirinense to the seed exchange and wanted to show what the plant is like where the seeds came from.
I have grown this from seeds I got from a friend who had gotten seeds for her plant from Sweden.
My plant has pale yellow flowers, with many branches, it is about 1,70cm tall and flowers here in July for quite a long time. I have also A.septentrionale (grown from seeds from the plants which are native in east of Finland), and that plant flowers earlier, always in June, and has different foliage.

Very nice. Like a more refined A. lycoctonum. Like the dissected foliage. Is it easy to grow?

It has been easy for me, like many Aconitums, except climbing ones like A.hemsleyanum and that sort are not so easy for me. I know many people here who can grow climbing Aconitums, but my soil may be too heavy for them. The seeds of A.kirinense require fluctuating temperatures below 0C  to germinate and probably two winters, so it is best to sow them outside.

Mine have just arrived via the seed exchange today Leena, looking forward to trying this one, thank you. Hopefully it will germinate as monkshoods can be a bit temperamental.

I hope they germinate for you. If not, and when my seeds germinate (in spring this or next year), it would be easy to send couple of seedlings in a letter.

Lovely plant, Leena. Much better than my A. lycoctonum. Will look out for it in next year's seed exchange.

Margaret, remind me in the autumn that I will send you seeds when they ripen. ;)
