Spider Flower or Cleome

My spider flower plant or cleome  is almost done blooming but of course I won't let  the opportunity pass without snapping  a photo of it.  I got so many of this last year but decided to trim down  most of it this year as so many bumble bees are in my yard all the time.  My son got beat by one sometime last year so he is so scared of  bumble bees.
I like its flowers but I don't like the smell.

The photo is really beautiful! Such a shame that it has an odor that is not pleasant or inviting. I love having flowers at home for its natural aroma but if it's foul smelling then it beats the purpose of having its beauty displayed. Thank you for sharing!

You must really have a green thumb because it shows on your plants. Flowers would always be my favorite.

I used to have tons of these in our yard when my husband decided to pluck them off the yard because he said it looks like the Maryjane. hahahaha... Silly husband. They are some pretty blooms though.

this flower sure looks beautiful, too bad it has a rather uninviting smell. flowers are a joy to look at + i would really love to have a couple on my little yard.

I don't think I've ever seen a flower like this. It looks exotic.
