A pretty spider…
.Here’s an interesting addition to your garden… Cleome, otherwise known as the Spider flower. Sporting flowers in white, pink and fushia, Cleome has a wild, crazy, spidery look (thus the name). It can certainly add a fun, fluttery, texture to an otherwise dull flower bed.
Several years ago we began growing Cleome when a friend passed along some seeds. And man, you better like it, ’cause it’ll grow. Even though it’s an annual, Cleome re-seeds, multiplies, and in the right environment, will flourish for many years to come.
Right now is a great time to hunt for a good spot to plant Cleome in the spring.
Happy planting planning!
