It makes a nice impact in a rectangular container mixed with other annuals - it only have brief pauses between blooming and is really tough against heat and droughts. But they are also hard to find those days in the market.

Incredible compact form for Cleome! This plant was discovered by two gardeners from North Carolina and introduced by Allen Armitage through his "Athens Select" program. Unlike other Cleome, this one is a compact grower, under 3', and blooms in our area from July through frost! Another attribute, it will not reseed in your gardens like other Cleomes as this plant is sterile (does not produce seed).

At the nursery where I work we have used these in a variety of containers, and they are a great filling tall element, not as smelly as the other cleome and the foilage is an interesting color also. Butterflies and bees love it, I have added one in my border, it is a great compact plant
