Castor Bean

Castor bean is a herbaceous annual which can grow up to nearly 15 feet tall when grown in open spaces and warm climates. The leaves are glossy and often red or bronze tinted when young. The flowers appear in clusters at the end of the main stem in late summer. The fruit consists of an oblong spiny pod which contains three seeds on average. The plant itself is fast growing, but the seeds require a long frost-free season in order to mature. All parts are highly toxic if ingested.
