Ricinus communis
‘New Zealand Purple’
“Purple Castor Bean”

Ricinus communis New Zealand Purple Castor Bean Ricinus communis New Zealand Purple Castor Bean

Big, bold, fast and flamboyant Castor Bean plants are shameless attention grabbers! This new variety from New Zealand flaunts large deep purple foliage as well as purple stems. Grow a big leafy specimen or background plant in a hurry. To 6-10’ tall, evergreen and perennial in USDA Zone 9b-11 (here in coastal California), annual elsewhere. Grow in rich soil and regular water for best show. Warning: All parts poisonous.
