Need help with Monkshood

phyleux(Z6 WPA)September 7, 2011

Hello all,

Planted some monkshood about 6 years ago, pretty sure it's Aconitum carmichaelii Arendsii. First few years did great, grew into nice clumps and would bloom every year. Last year and this year, the plants started out really nice and green but about mid summer the leaves start to turn yellow and brown (pics below - ignore the date). Not sure what the problem is. The plants are in full sun, got plenty of rain this year. Was planning on moving them to a semi shaded spot, thinking they might be getting too much sun. Does any one know if this is some sort of disease? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Aconitum carmichaeli is not afraid of sun. Have you checked the stems for fungi? Have you tried to dig it up and check what is going on with the roots? Slugs can it the roots.
