Castor beans and Cannas doubled in height over the past 3 weeks!
July is an amazing month for tropical gardening. My castor beans which re-seeded themselves from last year are now taller than ever (clocking in at about 8 feet tall) and to top it off the Robert Kemp cannas are growing just as fast. Together the purple, lobed castor beans and the thick green canna leaves make one spectacular combination. Mother Nature knows what it's doing!
