Should I be concerned about the castor bean plant in my yard?
Yes! Although all of the plant is toxic, children usually only mess with the seeds. What many people do is cut off and dump the flowers when they bloom. No flowers- no seeds! Also, if you landfill the flowers before they bloom, you can avoid the serious allergy some people have to the pollen.
