Three Standout Annuals

Great for filling an empty spot in the yard—and fun to change out from one year to the next—these annuals showcase some extraordinary foliage. Mix them into beds and borders or pot them up for some stunning containers.

Castor Bean
Ricinus communis
Tropical-looking green-to-burgundy lobed leaves up to 18 inches wide. Not for yards where small children play, as all parts are poisonous. Full sun; up to 10 feet tall.
