Cleome - Colour Fountain

Cleome Colour Fountain produces huge, lightly-scented flower heads in shades of pink, rose, lilac and white above slightly spiny stems. This half-hardy annual makes a great impact in borders, reaching the height of 120cm
CAUTION: Mature plants develop small spines on their stems.

Sow indoors, from February to April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow, 0.5cm deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant them, 5cm apart, to further trays when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out, from May to June, 45cm apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over. Flowers from July to October.
