Irritating Plant of the Month September 2017 - the Small One

By Ozhene @papaver
It was probably about this time last year that there was a Twitter discussion about the size of our ricinus plants.  It was a jolly 'mine is bigger than yours' kind of chat and we pondered whether next year (which is now this year) we would challenge ourselves to see who would grow the largest.  We laughed, we planned, we bought seeds.
Seeds were sown and germinated, all seemed good.
and now I proudly announce myself the winner.....
Irritating Plant of the Month September 2017 - the small one ..... of the smallest ricinus in the challenge.
and let's be clear, I didn't grow just one small one (barely 10 inches high)
Irritating Plant of the Month September 2017 - the small one No - they are all consistently small.  Maybe I bought a dwarf version?  Who knows!  (please don't notice that the grass edge needs cutting, they are not actually growing in a lawn depsite what it looks like).
Anyhoo, small they maybe but the foliage is still a wonderful color and I tell myself they look good anyway.
Sigh.
