My 15' tall castor plants (pics inside)
This forum is a great resource and has really sprouted my interest in gardening. As fall is approaching i wanted to take some pics of my castor plants that were just planted in early spring. They have grown over 14' since! I have never experienced such a fast growing plant and it is absolutely gorgeous. I have 3 of them and 2 of them are over 12' tall and the other is a little over 8'
Its also amazing how bugs dont mess with these plant cause of the ricin. Im planning on growing more of these guys after the frost. But i am quite curious how they will handle the North Georgia frost, it can get in the teens a couple times a year. I wonder if they will turn into a pile of mush like most cacti.
anyways here are my pics and a pic of me with my tallest castor, which is planted 12' below the deck.
