Notes:

I frequently drive past this exotic plant and have no idea what it could be. The leaves and red fuzzy balls are incredible! I would love to find out what this is and plant some of my own, any help identifying would be greatly appreciated!

    Bobby- Thank you! Now that I know what it is, I don’t think I want ricin growing anywhere near my child or pets! So I will continue to admire from afar!
