Sturdy upright plants with spikes of pale-pink hooded flowers -- an interesting colour departure for the monkshoods. The leaves are thick and leathery, dark green in colour with a glossy surface and broadly dissected into tri-lobed sections. A great vertical accent for sun to part shade. All parts of the plant are poisonous so don’t use it in salads.
