This is a dwarf form of the Castor Bean plant, with particularly attractive copper red leaves. These plants make very good ‘accent' plants in a flower bed and attractive pot plants. They grow to a height of about 1.2m, with pale yellow flowers in summer (July onwards) which turn into brilliant red fluffy seed heads. Plants provide an interesting tropical feel to gardens.
Ricinus ‘Impala’ 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 several years in warmer gardens and warmer winters.
Pack of 8 seeds. Sow in spring, for planting out after the last frost. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
