Capture your Magical Herb: Aconite

By Gail Allen, Ravenclaw

Aconite has hanging purple flowers which look a little like silk paper. This flower has the same purple-coloured flowers with a similar texture. Of course, the rest looks rather different, but the flowers are similar enough that it reminds me of aconite.

A close-up of a plant with an out-of-focus rural-appearing background. The plant has many long, narrow, and arching dark green leaves growing in a rosette. From the center of the rosette rises densely overlapping flower bracts, greenish-yellow in colour, with a couple of deep purple blossoms showing up on the left side of the bracts.
