About Cleome Sparkler Mix

Of course, Cleome Sparkler mixes well in the garden with its prolific bloom habits in colors of Lavender, Rose, and White flowers. Most universities include Cleome on their deer resistant plant list.

Planting and Growing Cleome

Make sure your Cleome “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area that is sunny. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot.
