Frost and cold winds are lethal to this elegant South American annual. Start under glass and only plant out after the danger of frosts has passed - obey these simple rules, and the rest is easy, despite its exotic appearance. The extraordinarily long stamens protruding from the large scented flowers and the long seed pods borne later in the season give the flowers its spidery appearance. 'Helen Campbell' is a particularly attractive variety which produces scented white flowers throughout the summer.

i had these last summer. beautiful flower but the caterpillars loved them too, absolutely obliterated it. striped it almost clean.
I have grown cleome's for several years, but last year & this year I am not able to find any in garden books or garden centres.I do love thsi flower can anyone suggest where I can get hold of them.
I have grown these from seeds (pods taken from flowers in France.) They grew quite easily but I stupidly planted them at the wrong time and I'm having to look after them indoors until warm enough to harden off outside.
