Well, that's pretty amazing and amazingly pretty! Never have seen one before. Is this the plant from which comes the castor oil that my mother made me drink which tasted so awful?

Very interesting but isn't it poisonous also? MB

Like others, I'm not familiar with this plant. I hope the "grows everywhere" doesn't mean it's invasive. Does it attract hummingbirds and butterflies?

How can something that tastes so 'icky' come from something so beautiful JM :))
