Default Unknown Plant Identified


The plant that I requested help with identification has been identified as Castor Bean, Ricinus communis.

The December meeting of the Botanical Society of Western Pennsylvania features members showing botanical photos from the year (up to 12 photos). I showed some of my California photos and asked if anyone knew what this plant was and two people had the answer.

At least that mystery is solved. You realize how much you don't know when you visit another part of the country.
