Ricinus communis 'Carmencita'
Scarlet Castor Bean

Need an alternative to bold-textured annuals such as Cannas and Elephant Ears? Need a bold-textured partner for Purple Fountain Grass, or something to rise amidst a sea of Margarita Sweet Potato Vine? Try the purple-foliaged forms of Castor Bean, but remember that its seeds are very poisonous, especially to unknowing children.
