Hummingbirds, butterflies and many other pollinators are frequent visitors to Cleome’s tall, deep-pink flowers. Drought- and heat-resistant, these robust annuals start the show in summer, and usually bloom well beyond the first frost. As a nice bonus, they are deer resistant.
Cleome does best in full sun and needs light to germinate. When danger of frost has passed, surface-sow seeds every 6 inches, cover very lightly with soil and keep moist. Plants emerge in 10 to 20 days. Germination may be hastened by stratification (chilling) for a week before planting, and sowing seeds when day and night temperatures fluctuate by 25°F.
Feed lightly with low-nitrogen fertilizer when plants are 6 inches tall and once a month thereafter. Blossoms form at the top of the plants, which branch and can grow 3, 4 or 5 feet tall making them ideal for the back of the bed. Cleome stems have very sharp spines and should be handled with caution. Once established, Cleome can self-sow (vigorously) unless seed pods are removed before they ripen.
