" As for monkshood and wolfsbane, they are the same
which also goes by the name of aconite. "
—Severus Snape during Harry's first Potions class
Aconite(also known as monkshood or wolfsbane) is a plant
with magical properties. Once widespread, this plant is now only found in wild
places. Its flowers are useful in potion-making, but its leaves are very toxic.
Aconite is most commonly known as an ingredient of Wolfsbane Potion. The root
of aconite can be used as a potion ingredient.
