My hubby brought me to lunch in Rathwood yesterday (yummy) & afterwards our 4 year old wanted to go on the slide.  I brought him out while hubby went looking at plants in garden section - when I came back in he had a trolley  (NOT LIKE HIM AT ALL!!), he had spotted a reduced area & wanted to know what I wanted!  We picked four pines, two were Pinus Sylvestris "Watereri" & two were Pinus Mugo "Benjamin" for €3 each (reduced from €12)  I also got a Stipa Gigantica & a Pennisetum Hamlyn (Fountain Grass) for €2 each, was really chuffed.

Any Ideas?

What is this?

What is this?

This is a plant I rescued from my Sister In Laws garden, she was dumping it as it was hidden behind another shrub, she hasn't a clue what it is and neither have I, I am guessing at some type of castor oil plant (in my ignorance!)  She does not remember even planting it.  Any ideas?  Better photo in Sept Album.
