The Cleome Violet Queen, 'Cleome spinosa', is a knockout! It is easy to grow and lends authority to any garden with the wonderful late summer color. The fluffy flower clusters are 3 to 6 inches across, and are a deep violet color. The Violet Queen is a wonderful flower to attract butterflies. The flowers and dry seed capsules are wonderful in arrangements. Violet Queens bloom in late July through first frosts, and remain hardy if grown in protected sites.Cleome likes rich, deep garden soil and is somewhat drought tolerant. If they are grown in exposed positions, they may require staking. The Violet Queen is best planted in back of beds or next to a wall, trellis, or fence. Plant after all danger of frost has passed. They can be mass planted in island beds, instead of trees or shrubs, where a strong vertical impact is needed. Plant in full sun for best results.
