Yes, castor bean plant makes a dramatic entrance and exit at the end of the season.



You guys are gonna love my New Zealand purple when I sow a seed shortly.


I'll continue to show more pictures as things develop and grow...

If they keep developing at this rate, they should be 5 feet tall by the weekend!

Exactly!


It'll be neat when the first true leaves appear. Can't remember if they're purple right away, or if they become purple later.


Guess we'll be finding out soon enough.
