Cleome Spinosa Mixed Color Seed
Cleome Spinosa Mixed Colour Seed
Annual cleome, sometimes known as spider flower, is distinguished by its extraordinarily lengthy seedpods. They form beneath the flowers as bloom goes higher on the stalk, giving the plants a spidery appearance, much like the flower's protruding stamens.
- This flower variety produces airy racemes, or clusters of flowers, that are six to eight inches in diameter and have many flowers that open at once. Lavender, pink, or white cleome blossoms are available. They rest atop stems that can reach a height of six feet.
- It thrives in typical soil that receives full or nearly full sun. Although it is fairly drought-tolerant, it will look and grow better with adequate watering. Spider flower plants should be spaced one to three feet apart.
- Plant Cleome where its dramatic quality will stand out, such as in the center of island beds, to back up borders, or wherever else.
