Cleome spinosa, 'Cherry Queen'

 

Spider Flower 'Cherry Queen'

The cleome spider is tall and leggy in appearance with leaves and flowers that are intricate and showy. They may be bi-colored in pink or lilac colours with white or they may be only of a single colour. Flowers will appear in summer and may last until frost occurs. Cleomes are an elegant and ethereal, very long-lasting and statuesque annual and a must for the summer and autumn garden. 'Cherry Queen' has large airy rose-pink flowers. Self sows readily.

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Plant out young plants straight into their growing poistion after the danger of frost has passed. They can be planted in full sun to partial shade in most soils, provided that it is well drained. A moist soil will result in less need for summer watering.
