There are three entrances in the data base that I believe are the same thing.
Aconitum bicolor,
Monkshood (Aconitum x cammurum 'Bicolor') and
(Aconitum x bicolor)
I didn't know who to ask about this so I thought I'd ask about it here.

Not so easy Sue, but it's done. A. bicolor was easy to delete after going to various DB. A. x bicolor is accepted by both The Catalog of Life/ITIS and The Plant List/Kew. Fine so far. A. x cammurum is accepted as well, ARS-GRIN, The Plant List/Kew. In looking up Aconitum x cammurum 'Bicolor' however it gets interesting. The RHS DB notes A. x bicolor as a synonym of A. x cammurum 'Bicolor' with a reference to The Garden 2005, which is earlier than the ITIS reference for acceptance, 2011.

What I've done is left one DB entry:
Aconitum X bicolor: accepted
Also Sold As: Aconitum x cammurum 'Bicolor'

Monkshood (Aconitum x bicolor)
