resembles the monastic head covering.
The other common name, “Wolfs bane”, was given because the shepherds in
ancient Greece laced bait and arrows with Aconite to kill wolves.
Flower language: Be aware!Aconite represents caution, misanthropy
and death, so be careful if you are giving this flower to someone.
