Queen Purple Cleome Seeds
Our ‘Queen Purple’ Cleome Seed grows up tall and graceful, producing wondrously pinky-purple flower heads atop sturdy, spiky stems with short palm-like leaves all wrapped around. Its nickname is derived from the colorful and lengthy, wispy stamens that sprout throughout the flower head, remaining even after the blossoms have dropped their petals. The Queen series is known for its ability to reseed annually, more than many other varieties of cleome. Approximately 100 seeds per each hand-filled packet.

Cleome seeds do not require light for germination, but should be pre-chilled in the fridge at 40°F for at least 5 days prior to planting. Plant in an area with well-worked soil and at least morning and early afternoon sun; cover the seeds lightly and water very gently, but thoroughly, keeping them moist until sprouting. At soil temperatures above 70°F, Cleome normally takes about 10 days to germinate. Consistent moderate moisture will produce the best results as the plants mature. Plant 1-3 inches apart, thinning to 15-18 inches. If you wish, start indoors to transplant to get a jump start and then plant outdoors when all danger of frost has passed.
