Thanks, Gene.  We have been quite dry here.  Both my clumps of Monkshood
are in partial shade - I don't have many sunny spots - but it has been quite 
I do mulch and add compost whenever I can, but I guess I haven't given those
special treatment.

  Sounds like a bit too much dry and hot. Try a bit more consistent 
moisture, perhaps a bit more shade... especially from afternoon sun if that 
is what it receiving. More consistent moisture can be maintained with more 
humus in the soil, mulch. Long as the mulch is not over the crowns of the 
plants. Many of the aconites are mountain plants ..... want it cooler. I 
also use Fall blooming anemone between my monkshood to help hide some of the 
browning. This year it has been a bit unsightly for we were in drought from 
mid-July until yesterday.
