Cleome, a.k.a., Floral Fireworks

Several years ago, I was in Frankenmuth, MI, home of Bronner’s Christmas Store. There were a lot of these flowers in beds along the street. I literally ran all over town trying to find someone who could tell me what they were. The answer, Cleome (klee-oh’-me). I’ve had them in the garden almost every year since. They remind me of fireworks, which I love. They are easily grown from seed and they self-seed.
