Always wash your hands after handling monkshood or wear gloves. You’ll find many references in literature to monkshood being used to kill enemies. Do not grow this plant around young children or curious pets. That said, monkshood has been safely cultivated in gardens for hundreds of years. It is a lovely flower, just use caution when handling it.
