Organic Carmencita Castor Bean Not subtle or subdued, castor beans are unapologetically gorgeous tropical behemoths, quickly growing eight feet by August with ruby leaves two feet wide.

Though they are very poisonous both internally and externally to mammals, hummingbirds sip their nectar all day long and sparrows often take up residence in their lush foliage.

Like sunflowers, trellising is unnecessary.

Grow Like a Pro: All parts of the castor bean are both internally and externally poisonous to mammals, including the sap from broken branches, so resist the temptation to add them to bouquets. If you harvest seeds, wear gloves.
