This plant came up in one of my pots last year. I appears to be heat tolerant. I also seems to be cold resistant too as it survived one our coldest winters in years.

If anyone has any idea what it is, please let me know.

Thanks.

Hi Dawn. I'm not sure only way I knew was the berries appeared after the first year of planting

Is there a way to tell one from the other before the berry production stage?

I have one that is about 35 years + and it is a BIG beautiful shade tree...and one that is about 4 years old. One is male and the younger one is female with berries. The birds love that one...

It looks like the making of a Mulberry Tree to me

Nope, not a castor bean. Leaves are different shape.

These things get quite large and grow wild in downtown Tucson for some reason. I think castor bean is right on.

Looks like a castor bean plant to me also.

Looks like a Castor Bean Plant... Toxic to young children if they were to chew on a leaf.
