This white monkshood is a herbaceous perennial with a rigidly upright and towering form. It's attractive, deeply cut, ferny leaves remain dark green in colour throughout the season contrasting with the bold spikes of white, hooded flowers rising above the foliage. Monkshoods are great from sun to part shade and offer a great way to get vertical spikes into shadier positions. Don't use them in salads: bad idea.
