plants your garden

mighty cleome

Judging by the amount of seed these garden prodigies generate I won’t need to worry about next year’s annual flower selection. I am going to have a very exclusive, cleome only garden, where said plant will multiply exponentially to eventually cover the world.

As I got closer to take this picture, one of the flower stalks swayed in the wind and sprinkled a fresh batch of ripe seeds all over the lawn.

They are slow to start and sneak up on you towards the end of the season, with sizable clumps covered in flowers. I really like them and wished I planted more this spring, I guess I got my wish.

P.S. Fast forward nine months and indeed, the world is covered in cleomes. As bad as I feel about pulling something that looks so beautiful I’m going to have to. There is no room for anything else but them.
