Corolla has distinctly clawed lips. Flowering occurs in May and June, while fruiting occurs in August and September. Fruits are orange-red in colour.

Varieties Although no variety has been developed for this plant, yet based on the colour of the tubers, Aconitum heterophyllum is classified into white, yellow, red, and black varieties. The white (daughter tuber) variety, with rapid growth and high yield, is considered to be the best. Seeds and tubers collected from alpine meadows (about 3000–4000 m altitude) have better growth, survival, and yield than those collected from alpine pastures between 2500 and 3000 m altitudes. 12 ACONITUM HETEROPHYLLUM LINN .

Branches are modified into cladodes with long basal decurved spines. 5–5 cm long, racemes. Fruit is a three-lobed, red coloured berry, up to 6 mm in diameter, with mottled seeds and oily endosperm. Flowering and fruiting occur in December–January. Distribution Shatavar is common throughout the tropical and subtropical regions, particularly central India.
