Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Cleome seeds can be sown directly into the garden after the threat of the last frost has passed. Choose a location that enjoys full sunlight and has well-draining soil. Space the seeds about 6-8 inches apart and cover lightly with soil. They're relatively drought-tolerant once established but will appreciate regular watering in the early stages of growth. As they reach maturity, these plants can be thinned out to stand 12-15 inches apart. While Cleomes are naturally robust and resistant to most pests, keeping an eye out for aphids can help ensure their optimal health. Due to their height, placing them at the back of flower beds or as a stand-alone feature can help showcase their beauty without overshadowing shorter plants.
