Cleome

One of the flowers I have in my garden that bumble bees and other critters like is the Cleome.  Some people calls it a spider plant because of it 6 thin legs.  
I love this plant because it is very easy to grow and they multiply and comes back every year.
I am also fascinated  by the way they blossom and everything.
In one stem, you will have a big ball of blooms just like   a firework.
Bugs love it.  It doesn't have a  nice smell though.
They are now in full bloom and you will hear the bumble bee buzz around all day.

A very lovely and unusual looking flower. I like the feathery petals.

One of my favourite annuals, though I confess I didn't grow any this year. Shame on me!

I was unfamiliar with this plant. It is lovely. Thanks for the introduction!

I can enjoy your flowers and not have them bother my allergies! What a wonderful compromise!

Anna said...

Love this flower but unable to grow it because of all the thorns :( Will have to content myself with admiring it from afar :)

remind me more of butterflies than spiders and look as delicate as china. Lovely topic for C.

I have a little cleome going on at my site too. Your photos are lovely. One of my friends always calls them flowers from outer space because of their 'alien' shapes :O)

Stunning plant - I have not heard of it before. But now I will see that I get it for my garden.
