Description for Cleome

Plant height: 3 - 6 inches
Plant spread:

Although cleome is an annual, it often reseeds itself, making it grow year after year in the same location.

Cleome or spider flower is often overlooked as a seedling in garden centers because of its nondescript, almost weedy, appearance. However, once established in the flower garden, cleome puts on a dazzling summer flower show until frost. Its a tall, thorny-stalked annual with spider-like flower heads.
When planted in groups it gives the impression of a flowering shrub.

Common name(s): Spider Flower, Rocky Mountain Beeplant, Stinking Clover
Flower colours: Pink, purple, white, lavender.
Bloom time: Early summer until first frost.
Max reacahble height: 3 to 6 feet.
Difficulty to grow:: Easy.

Planting and care

Plant in full sun, thinning or spacing individual plants to 1 foot apart. Plant where you wont have to brush against the stems often since many varieties have thorns.

Sunlight: Full sun,part sun.
Soil: Cleome flowers thrive in average garden soil.
Water: You will only need to water cleome if you are undergoing a drought.
Temperature: Warm and the night time temperature is well above freezing before moving outside.
Fertilizer: Spider flowers are light feeders, and giving them too much nitrogen results in leggy plants. Cleome dont usually require extra feeding so if you have fertile soil, no additional fertilizing will be needed.
