Thomas Jefferson loved the beautiful flower trusses of tall cleome in his renowned flower gardens at Monticello. Today, these vigorous summer flowers are treasured in heirloom and restoration gardens. The 4-5' plants are crowned with huge flower clusters of pale pink, crisp white and rose violet florets. Cleome's unique blossoms with their long petals and spidery stamens are favourites of nectar seeking hummingbirds. They make striking large arrangements when the long stems of bloom are brought indoors.
