Several weeks ago, we shipped an order of Aconitum (monkshood) plants to the Hollywood producers of NCIS-LA for an episode of the show which just aired involving monkshood poisoning. You can find episode 11-24 titled Traitor on line and watch our plants have their 15 minutes of fame.
Just saw the episode! As a lover and grower of the beautiful plant, they did go just a leeeetle over board with its toxicity, which no doubt adds to the Monkshood Mystique!
Exaggeration on television? You don’t say.
