Cleome (Cleome hassleriana)

With big dramatic flowers in shades of pink, purple and white, cleome are a wonderful addition to the cut-flower garden. The plants generally grow to about 4-5 ft tall and they attract all sorts of pollinators, especially hummingbirds! Cleome make wonderfully fragrant cut flowers and the spiky seed pods add a unique look to the garden. Cleome like to grow in full sun but once they're established they need very little care.

Origin: The parent seed of our Cleome came from the Tuileries Garden, located between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, France. Many years ago we knew a gardener at Tuileries and she gave us Cleome seeds from their collection. 

(Approximately 50 seeds per packet)

Planting Instructions: Sow cleome seeds by scattering the seeds on prepared soil in full sun. The seeds germinate best with light. You can either sow the seeds in the fall and they'll emerge when conditions are right in spring, or,  you can sow seeds right around your last frost date in spring. Seeds can take 10-15 days to germinate.
