How to grow

How To Grow Cleome From Seed: Sow Spider Flower seeds indoors in late winter for transplanting outdoors after danger of frost. Or for areas with a long growing season, sow the flower seeds directly in the garden after danger of frost has passed and the soil temperature has warmed.

Plant Cleome Spider Flowers in full sun and in fertile well-drained soil. 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.
