Plant Species of the genus Ricinus

Information about this genus
Name: Ricinus
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: It requires fertile soil with ample organic matter added to ensure moisture retention and free drainage. Although a full sun position suits this plant, its brittle stems need to be protected from winds and frost. When grown from seed care must be taken as the seed coats, and other parts of the plant, are extremely toxic.
Description: This single-species genus from northeast Africa has naturalized throughout the tropical regions but is considered a prized annual in many cold-climate gardens and is grown for its deeply lobed, and often colored, leaves.
