This unique plant grows wild in the plains of the South American countries of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. Botanical studies show that in its native area, this plant is principally pollinated by bats as they partake of nectar. The common names referring to spiders or whiskers are derived from the long, thin stamens that extend several inches beyond the flower cluster. This flower has traditionally been grown in the estate gardens of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello for generations.
Also known as Spider Flower or Grandfather's Whiskers plant, Cleome flower seeds produce airy blooms and a bushy, full plant. This dwarf hybrid Cleome Hassleriana Spider Flower gives you armloads of blooms over a very long season on plants that don't exceed 4 feet tall. This Cleome plant also attracts butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden which every gardener enjoys.
Sow Spider Flower seeds indoors in late winter for transplanting outdoors after danger of frost. Or sow the flower seeds directly in the garden after danger of frost has passed and the soil temperature has warmed.
Do not cover the flower seeds but firmly press them into the soil. Keep the Cleome seeds moist until germination occurs and then water regularly to provide a great start for this prolific bloomer. Spider Flower plants are known to re-seed, dropping their flower seeds for next year's display.
