it's a lovely specimen Meanie but not to sure it's A.Anthora... flower shapes not quite right are they fully open?

Fully open SL.
I reckon Aconitum vulparia maybe?

yes that looks like it, nice one..

how about Aconitum lycoctonum?

Cheers Kasy!

Could well be.............
Now I'm confused again!!!!

haha - I just googled the name, compared images - and came up with that name, lol.

I guess that it is what it is Kasy! Certainly not what the label says though..........

hmmm - labels... Now that I am an experienced sales assistant in a garden centre - I know what can happen with labels. They fell off easily from the pots - and can be replaced in somewhere where they don't belong, hehe.
Although I would never do that. If I am not sure where it came from - it's ending up in a bin rather than in a wrong pot. I would rather say - 'I am sorry we lost the label' than cause the confusion

They were made specially for this according to the photo on it though............

They could swap the labels in a nursery though;-)

if it's a young'ish plant it may not get it's full characteristics till it's established Meanie, so label may be correct, see what it's like next year....

The picture on the label is the same as this...............

3 Jun, 2012

 

that's even more confusing then;-)

3 Jun, 2012

 

Just plain wrong I reckon!

3 Jun, 2012

 

oh - just a human error. Nobody is perfect, lol.

3 Jun, 2012

 

that's the truth :-)
