Spider Flower Seeds
Art Pack. 150 seeds. Cleome hassleriana
What if spiders carried flowers on their backs? What if they spun their webs atop tall stalks so their bundles of blooms could be seen above the garden fray of rocks and weeds? Would you make room for these leggy blossom bearers? If you grow Cleome, the Spider Flower, the answer is yes. Let these pink flowers be born and stretch their long, seed-podded legs in your garden.
