Castor Bean Plant

I purchased two Castor bean plants for our back yard because they were an interesting plant with red stems and beautiful flowers, but then I found out their seeds are extremely poisonous and can kill humans and animals if ingested. Yikes! My husband had me move my Castor bean plants to the front away from our dogs turf. My Castor bean plants are thriving in the front, but now they are starting to remind me of marijuana plants. (No wonder we have no friends on our street.) What message are we sending to the neighbors with a plant that produces deadly fruit on our front porch?

  1. This plant plays an important role in "Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination." Yes, a true work of literary genius. But it actually is in my top 5 audiobooks list. Spoiler alert - the castor bean plant is a bit of a villain.
