Spider Flower (Cleome hassleriana Helen Campbell) 200 seeds (#1669)

Helen Campbell spider flower is a white-flowering form of cleome which is an annual native to Paraguay, Argentina, Uruguay and southern Brazil. These colorful, sun-loving annuals have fragrant foliage and colorful, highly scented flowers. The habit is very upright, the leaves are divided and palmate –like a hand at the bottom of the plant, undivided at the top and there is a spine at the base of each leaf. The airy flowers are produced at the ends of hairy stalks in loose, globular, un-branched groups in the summer. Each flower has long stamens giving it a spider-like appearance.
Cleome thrives in sandy, well-drained soils and hot weather. Sow the seeds after the danger of frost or grow in containers. Use Cleome in the backs of borders, as bedding plants and as cut flowers. Spider flower does self seed and tends to pop up around the garden.
