This was a striking huge monkshood (ge. Eisenhut), it was estimated 1.8 m high and had large flowers, i guess rather too big for A. paniculatum or variegatum ?
So i got no secure species ID at time. The genus is complex and ID of species' difficult in general - can you help me with this one?
Ranunculales is an order of flowering plants. Of necessity it contains the family Ranunculaceae, the buttercup family, because the name of the order is based on the name of a genus in that family. Ranunculales belongs to a paraphyletic group known as the basal eudicots. It is the most basal clade in this group; in other words, it is sister to the remaining eudicots. Widely known members include poppies, barberries, and buttercups.
