Can anyone tell me what type of plant this is?
an aconitum, probably Aconitum napellus
Nice one, my aconitums always fall over
Aconitum - very beautiful and good for bumblebees. Won't get eaten by slugs and snails.
Like digitalis (foxgloves) it is toxic to humans so make sure you wash your hands after handling it or wear gloves. No need to panic. Lots of common garden plants are toxic and I have brought up my daughter safely with loads of these in the garden.
That should stop the arguing in my house. Not bad for a weed that got missed, not a problem they are huge and not staked. Thanks again
