Cleome, Queen Mixed Colors is rated out of 5 by 4.Rated 1 out of 5 by Veronica from Disappointment I ordered these flower seeds and not one grew. Nothing. Hesitant about ever ordering again.Date published: 2014-09-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Honeybee from Cleome, Queen Mixed Colors My Grandmother had this flower in her garden. It has been around a long time, so it is a favorite. If you are looking to create a romantic or cottage style garden, then you want this one. Very easy to start from seed, as easy as Marigolds. It is a hardy, robust, and vigorous plant that blooms until frost. It is very tall so you will want it in the background. If you prefer one color instead of the mix, then save the seeds from that plant. I hated the stickiness of the seed pods as a child, but learned to appreciate with my eyes, not my fingers.Date published: 2011-04-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisa Gerald from The Spider Flower-Cleome Hassleriana I had a freind, who's friend purchased the seed your Burpee 3 years ago she gave me a couple rootings, and I planted them-Despite the fact that this is a introduction to gardening, For everything you want to grow the "Spider Flower" is just the masterpiece you could create, This beautiful garden of flowers are prize winning, the best show a gardener's bed could ever grow, these flowers will grow either in the sun or shade,in groups of flowers and height in summer .These flowers like well-drained,fertile,organic soil. They are hardiness in zone 6-9, The mature size in width is 24inches and tall they develop any where from on to five feet in height.The spider flower will spice up any garden bed with delightfully bizarre flowers bursting from tall stems lined with stiff,smelly,sticky leaves,especially in the grand old Queen cleomes.Perhaps because of its distinctive aroma and furry foliage, spider flower used to be a "love" it or hate it plant. They are not hard to grow, but will be stunted by prolonged droughts, so they are perfect candidates for planting along a soaker hose.Plant spider flowers in soil amended as needed to enrich it and improve its drainage. Dig the hole a bit larger than the root ball, and if the roots are tightly wound, tear them slightly before planting. Watering deeply once a week or more often in hot, dry weather will sustain plants and flowers: use fertilizer through the season if needed. Potential problems: no pest: if they reseed to excess, remove seedpods before they open and keep the plants mulched.Date published: 2006-06-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Petals from Cleome Queen of the garden I have bought alot of plants, bulbs, seeds thru the years, but nothing compares to these stunning flowers.
