castor bean plant
Reviewed By: Deborah D. (Santa Ynez, Ca.)
This is an incredibly invasive plant that is extremely hard to eradicate in zones 9 and down. It should be planted only if willing to contain its spread as it will escape and crowd out native species. Also, as mentioned in the sales description, all parts of the Castor plant are poisonous. Frankly with all that in mind it may only qualify as a houseplant in a very brightly lit location.

Beautiful large leaves that have a tropical feel to them. The flowers are very interesting to boot. A plant worth trying in any garden.

Memories of castor bean plants
Reviewed By: wGoddard (derry, nhy)
I remember my mother planting castor bean plants beside our small apartment in a trailer part we lived in in the 50's. Well she got so much attention and so many compliments about them! They were vibrant, tall, refreshing, they added beauty to a place that needed it! I was so proud of her. They are a special plant for me to remeber them all these years.

I plan to buy several of these plants. My neighbor actually wants them for one specific reason. Many years ago, her father in law used the to kill moles. She has tried everything and her yard is infested with moles that eat the roots from her other plants and have destroyed her yard. It is understood that the moles will feed on the roots and the toxicity will kill them. FYI

This is a unique, beautiful plant and not invasive here in 7b. Surprisingly it did winter over tho' and provided two extra "volunteers" this season (that became great passalong gifts). I love the subtle coloring, leaf shape and bright flower at the top.
