It is commonly known as Chinese aconite, Carmichael's monkshood or Chinese wolfsbane , Torikabuto}}). It is known in Mandarin as Fu Zi (meaning daughter root, or lateral root) and as Wu Tou (meaning tuberous mother root, or root tuber).
It is valued as a garden plant, and numerous cultivars have been developed, of which 'Arendsii' and 'Kelmscott' (Wilsonii Group) have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
All parts of this plant are extremely toxic, and it has historically been used as a poison on arrows. It is sometimes used topically in Dit Da Jow liniment. If not prepared properly by a trained person, Aconitum can be deadly when taken internally.
