Ricinus


My Ricinus was quick to grow because the weather was moist and warm. Though highly poisonous, it is often to be seen in the gardens. 


At the moment, the plant is in full bloom and the stems have this characteristic red colour. 


The plant needs some space but it is very attractive. As you can see, the panicle-like inflorescences bear two kinds of flowers. The one with yellow stamens are male flowers.
