An attractive compact variety of Castor Bean plant, with bronze leaves and dark green stems. These plants make very good ‘accent’ plants in a flower bed and attractive pot plants. They grow to a height of 1.2 – 1.5m, with brilliant red seed heads in summer. Plants provide a fast-growing and interesting tropical feel to gardens. They will grow in large containers.
Ricinus ‘Gibsonii’ grows best in full sun and moist rich soil. It grows fast and grows well as an annual in the UK, although it may survive for many years in warmer gardens and warmer winters.
Pack of 8 seeds. Sow in spring indoors and plant out after the last frost. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
