Purple Glow Castor Bean

Dramatic, tropical looking foliage

  • Grown as an annual
  • Grows 5 ft. tall
  • Purple foliage and vibrant red flowers
An even more striking version of the stately castor bean, Purple Glow's young foliage starts out very dark purple and contrasts beautifully with the older leaves. The large, tropical-looking leaves provide a dramatic backdrop for the vibrant red flowers. The fast-growing castor bean is grown as an annual in most parts of the United States. Growing 5 ft. tall, it can be grown as a privacy screen or in back borders. Note: Castor Bean seeds are poisonous. Some gardeners, especially those with small pets and children, may choose to remove and discard any seedpods that develop on the plant for this reason. 140-180 DAYS
