Castor Bean Plant (Ricinus Communis)

http://www.durgan.org/URL/?FGAFA 30 July 2010 Castor Bean Plant (Ricinus Communis)
Castor Bean Plant (Ricinus Communis) is an annual.. It has very large tropical appearing leaves, and is grown for its decorative addition to my home garden. The beans if ingested are very poisonous, and must be accounted for to prevent animals and others from ingesting. One or two beans are apparently the route to a very painful death. I remove the large seed pods during the Summer, and only allow a few to mature for the following year’s seed.
