Grower Information:

Compact cleome is 30% smaller than the leading vegetative variety, so it won’t take over in the garden. It has soft thorns instead of the sharp, wood thorns usually found on cleome, making it easier to handle and ship. Heat and drought-tolerant; lasts until first frost. Butterflies, bees and hummingbirds love it!
