    Aconitum, but there are a lot of different species and varieties so not sure which particular one.

    Very nice, Tina. I NEVER get mine to flower. It waits until the frost to pop out its flowerbuds and by them it is too late. Where do you have yours? maybe mine is in too much shade.

    This is not mine, Carolyn.
    We visited a garden over the weekend and this flower is from there. It is indeed very beautiful.
    Thanks for the id, Netty and Palustris.

    Tina,

    Aconitum are indeed very beautiful but please be aware that many species of then are highly poisonous,especially if you have small children or animals around.Its worth reading up on them before you buy.

    Thanks Karin. I did read about the plant and I don't plan to get it.
