Aconitum napellus subsp. vulgare
Aconitum napellus subsp. vulgare was also known as Aconitum compactum, which tells us that the spikes of flowers are shorter than in other varieties of the species. It is also characterised by the linear leaf segments. In this case the flowers are violet to deep blue, although there is a white-flowered form ('Albidum') known.
A monkshood with compact spikes of violet to deep blue flowers.
