Sick Monk

One by one, over the last month, and after incredible spring growth, the Monkshood, Aconitum, has been wilting to death.

It starts like this, and ends like that brown crumpled thing on the left. Any ideas about what it could be? Water is ruled out. Root insect, disease, or competition not ruled out.


  1. Damn! I love Aconitum but I have no helpful suggestions.

  2. Hmm, only thing that I can think of is from the water since there's been very heavy downpours lately..

  3. Unfortunately, its been going on at least a month.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
