NEW FOR 2022!
Redwhisker Clammyweed - Polanisia dodecandra - Annual
Oooh this is a fun plant. A cousin to wild Cleome, this annual easy-to-grow plant comes with fabulous red 'whiskers' and upright seed pods.
Plant in fall to early spring 1/4" deep. Grows up to 2' tall and is quite striking in bloom. White flowers with long red stamens make a gorgeous contrast. It likes full sun, gravelly or sandy soil and I find it at around 6,700' in the Rockies.
It's sticky to the touch and pollinators love it. Allow it to reseed and dance around with the wild Cleome.
