Spider Flower
Spider Flower
Common name: Spider Flower, Spider Legs, Cleome Botanical name: Cleome hasslerana Family: Capparaceae -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cleome gets it's nickname "Spider Flower" from the spidery-like flowers with long, waving stamen which are held on tall, strong leafy stems. Planted in mass, they look like blooming shrubbery with 8-inch balls of blossoms. They will reach a height of 6 feet in a good season. Violet Queen, Cherry Queen, Pink Queen and Helen Campbell (white) are among the most popular cultivars. One of their best attributes is that they are easily grown and normally trouble free, with no insects or diseases to worry about. When other late summer plants look wilted under the torrid sun, cleome stand out robust and strong. The Spider Flower adds a graceful, dainty look to the garden, producing lacy clusters of long flowers from summer to fall. Leaves sort of resemble a Japanese Maple leaf and are composed of 5 leaflets each 5 to 6 inches long, usually with a pair of tiny thorn-like spines at base of each leaflet. Lower leaves of the plant tend to fall off by the end of summer, and can be covered by companion plants. Spider flower is a half-hardy annual native to the southern states of North America and to Brazil and Argentina in South America. This flower attracts bees and hummingbirds.
