Effervescently cheerful and impressively resilient, Cleome attracts beneficial pollinators from near and far for months on end. In fertile soil, cleome can easily grow 5′ beautifully swaying in the wind, though her strong stems have thorns making her unrealistic for cutting. All the more reasons to enjoy her all season! And your honeybees agree. At Fruition, we sow cleome directly in the soil after frost, once the soil is warm (after freezing the seed for one week).
