Many thanks everyone! Smiling
Here is a bit more of the pic....I created that banner July 29, 2017.
Thumb of 2017-12-09/EscondidoCal/e0d673

I didn't start growing Cleome till 4yrs ago, but have saved the seeds ever since.
It's amazing to me how fast they grow from a seedling to 6ft in one month (or seem to).
I had some pink ones, but now just the taller purplish ones.

Considering how many seeds they produce, I'm amazed as well they don't take over.
But it only takes a few to make an impressive bloom.

Mind the the thorns, though! Very prickly stems, so I always wear gloves. Thumbs up
