Monkshood(Aconitum ‘Ivorine’)烏頭屬

Warning, dangerous perennial!  The whole plant has deadly poison even just through skin contact.  Always wear gloves when you handle it when you are gardening!

I know many gardeners likes its late blooming time and no animals will bother it for sure but I do think it is too dangerous to keep in your property.   Young kids, even adults and pets may not eat the plant but might touch it without knowing it.   The genus name “Aconitum" in Greek meaning “without struggle".   It is historically used to kill wolves.  Even though it is also used as medicine, unless you are a pharmacist,  I do not suggest anyone plant it.  If your garden has them, perhaps you should remove them safely or at least be more careful!

警告!  這是含有劇毒的多年生草花!  全株含有劇毒:  “烏頭屬毒性非常高,它們也是非常重要的藥用植物。其毒性主要來自烏頭鹼。未受傷的皮膚就已經可以吸收烏頭鹼。皮膚敏感的人可以通過接觸而過敏。在藥學中主要使用烏頭的,這裡的藥性濃度非常高。"– 維基百科.  http://zh.wikipedia.org/zh-tw/%E4%B9%8C%E5%A4%B4%E5%B1%9E  整理花園一定要戴上手套!

我知道許多愛花人看上它開花晚的優點並且因有毒所以動物完全不會去碰它.  不過我認為它的毒性太強真的不適合種在花園裡面.  小孩子甚至於大人和寵物即使不會去食用它也可能會不經意的觸摸到.  屬名Aconitum希臘文的意思是"不會掙扎"因其毒性強且快. 古時是用來毒殺狼群的毒藥.   雖也被用來藥用,除非你是醫生或藥劑師,我還是不建議任何人種植此屬的植物.   假如你發現你的花園裡有它們的存在,也許在知道它的危險性後你會考慮安全地清除它們,至少在接進它們時要特別注意安全!
