the fact that it's poisonous is only part of the fun!

It was a good year for the Castor Beans! Last year they didn't get tall, or red. This year, BOTH!

A fabulous plant, that fills tons of space, cheaply. It looks great against the bland garage. Doesn't it look great with the cabbage and hakone grass?

After several frosts, it looks a little sad now. But I'm reluctant to say goodbye just yet...
