Monkshood Purple Flowers Chugach State Park Alaska

Vibrant purple hues radiate from the flowers on the Monkshood which grow across the landscape in Chugach State Park in Alaska, USA.

Each purple flower blossoming on the top of a Monkshood plant grows in a unique way, resembling that of a monk's hood. The entire Monkshood plant is extremely toxic and can cause a feeling of numbness when touched with the skin.

Across the landscape of Chugach State Park in Alaska, USA, bordering the woodlands, the Monkshood thrives as it gets the right amount of sun per day, moist soil and the ideal climate during the summer months. Other areas where the Monkshood flowers flourish is along creeks, in meadows, thickets, woods, on rocky slopes and across the alpine tundra.

These flowers are beautiful when in bloom, but they can be very toxic if touched and left in the wrong hands.
