Ricinus communis, or Castor Bean, known more as Castor Oil Plant, is a tropical annual that makes quite a stunning presence in the garden. This variety, Gibsonii, produces large, deep red leaves and scarlet seed heads making a very head-turning display. This tall annual is often used to make a back-drop for other lower-growing plants in the summer garden. It freely self-sows. Start Castor Bean seed directly outdoors in a prepared seedbed after danger of frost has passed. Press the seed into soil, cover it with 1/4 inch of soil and keep the seed moist but not wet. With a temperature of 65 - 70F, germination is usually in 14 days. Grow Castor Bean in full sun. It prefers well-amended, fertile soil. Space plants 36 - 48 inches apart. Caution: all parts of the plant, including seeds are poisonous.
Castor bean gibsonii plants are an annual red foliage plant which can grow up to 72 inches tall in USDA Zones 5 - 11.
