Ohio had record high temps in the summer of 2006. I started plants from seed and within a few weeks after setting plants out, plants were stunning. Seven feet tall and almost four feet across. My naighbors all wondered what type of plant this was. I have planted this plant about three years in a row however never with the results that I had in the summer of 2006

My Castor Bean Plants grew so large- at least 10 feet high. The leaves were enormous. I actually had people stop their cars and ask what kind of tree it was. I plant them every year. If the summers are very sunny, this plant grows very large.

Fast Grower like small trees
Reviewed By: Pat (indpls, IN)
First time grower in 2006. Once the seeds germinate they quickly outgrow any pot you put them in. Placed plants in the ground in July and still grew over 6 feet in 3/4 day sun. The huge leaves are amazing! Plants may need staking, but even if keaning, they just keep growing if roots stay covered.

caster bean plants
Reviewed By: Pamela Brust (Waverly, Ohio)
I have been growing caster bean plants for many years, not only do they look stunnily beautiful, but they repell gophers, ground moles and ground hogs. I had alot of trouble with them before I heard about this plant. My grandmother used to call them "dog tick" because the seeds look like large dog ticks. I plant them every year and will do so in the future.

I can`t wait for these plants to mature. I use the leaves to cast cement birdbaths. They are beautiful and useful. I had one plant grow at least 8 feet tall in our climate!.
