I’ve grown this cleome since it came out and was introduced. It blooms all summer long in my Zone 7 garden and looks good in containers or the landscaping. It’s not as tall as other cleomes and doesn’t reseed. It will get to about 48″ tall. It will eventually bush out more than what I’m showing you as mine is still young. I just planted it two weeks ago. Pest and disease don’t bother it and no animals have chewed it up.
It’s looking a bit yellow at the moment but that is because it was starved for fertilizer when I bought it. It was worse but is looking much better. I fertilize all my heavy feeders once a week with 1/2 strength liquid fertilizer.
Below is a stock photo from Proven Winners Plants–but I can promise that if you plant them in mass they will perform exactly like this picture. One of the best plants in my garden.
