Days to Maturity

70-80 Days to Maturity. Certified Organic.

These grand and statured plants invite us to enjoy their beautiful open blooms. You'll find they are a great focal point in a flower bed and also provide a great backdrop on the borders of your beds. These flowers flaunt colors of pink, pearl, purple and pomegranate. Beware of the thorns on the stems! Long seed pods that set far from the plant are striking in their own right, and are even colored a dark purple in the plants that have the darkest flowers. 

Transplant or direct seed Cleome. Sow 4-5 weeks before last frost in plug flats ⅛" below the growing medium. Transplant 18-24" apart in rows 18-24" apart. Or, direct seed after last frost ⅛" below the soil 18-24" apart in rows 18-24" apart. These plants will grow 48-60" in height through the growing season. As plants get tall and loaded with bloom they can benefit from some staking or trellis to stay upright and out of paths, since they have thorns. Happily self-sows for multiple years if seed pods are allowed to ripen and shatter in the garden. 

50 seeds per packet.
