Thanks guys.
Lori - to be fair, I bought this in bloom. I'm allowing a few seed pods to develop as I really like this.

just be careful handling the plant, Meanie. as it's rated "Very Toxic" in my herbal. It's one of the ingredients in the "flying potions" of medieval witches...aconite and belladonna.
