Aconitum Napellus - Monkshood, also called Blue Rocket, Friar's Cap, Aconite, Wolf's Bane, Leopard's Bane, Women's Bane, and Devil's Helmet . It is a deadly poison. It is also a very popular garden plant. Aconitine is one of the mostformidable poisons which has ever been discovered. ALL parts of the plant are poisonous, especially the root. Aconitum Napellus has a long history of use as a poison, with cases going back thousands of years. Sources suggest the name came from the Greek word ‘akónitos’ formed from ‘ak’, ‘pointed’ and kônos, ‘cone’. The name refers to the pointed leaves and to its use as a poison on arrows. It was used in ancient Rome and China where it was applied not just to the tips of arrows but also on the shafts. It was smeared on as a paste in the hope that anyone attempting to remove an arrow from a wounded soldier would also absorb the poison. (Source:
