Castor bean plants are easy to grow, though not too many people do because 
they are considered poisonous.  I have a bunch of seed somewhere which are 
not from this past summer, but the summer before. They look like regular 
bean seeds, so you can just poke them down in the soil where you want them 
to come up. I will try to find them and mail you some if you decide you want 
them. So let me know, and I will try to find where I put them. They grow 
pretty tall...about 8 ft. tall.  I have used the unusual flowers, seed pods, 
and foliage in creative floral designs.  I just always make sure I wash my 
hands after cutting them.  Pam Braun
