Delphinium Substitute (Aconitum)

Aka ACONITUM. Poisonous. I can't keep Delphiniums slugs destroy them.
In the background to the left, on the rope swag, wilty Clematis texensis Gravetyre Beauty.

That's a pretty one. I had "Stainless Steel' once but left it behind when we moved. Loved it, but had young grandchildren visiting.

I love these but wouldn't have one all the years I had Jack Russells. They love to dig and chew and a bit of this would have killed pretty fast so I stuck with Delphs.

Best idea Thorney, if you have pets.

What a pretty area of your garden! The ‘substitute’ plants are a winner! Just as lovely...

Kate, there is only the one plant, but has several flower spikes, best it's ever been.

Thank you, Kate. I'm got one blue one germinated from seed sown, but it's tiddily still.

As toxic wouldn't do in a garden open to visitors, or more precisely where it could be touched.
