Cleome is a perennial in North Carolina. It's called the "spider flower" and grows to about four feet tall or more. It prefers bright sun and fertile soil and will reseed. It's a beautiful cottage garden plant.
I'm thinking I will plant it in and around my foxglove, daylilies and obedient plants. It should blend in well with them.
So if your plants need divided and you have too many, don't dig them up and throw them away, Share, and spread the happiness!
