Rocky Mountain Bee Plant – Cleome serrulata – Pink Dwarf Native Garden Annual Free Ship
This is a fine example of a native annual that you can direct sow or start on a windowsill indoors to fill those gaps and extend your garden flowering season right through Summer.
Indispensable for new or established gardens in full Sun gardens this dwarf selection of pink flowers is a good fit for small or large gardens and can even be used in native containers for that Summer wow factor.
I sow mine in my own garden amongst grasses, bee balm, phlox, and other early/mid Summer flowering natives why not try some for yourself and perhaps gift some to a friend.
A well-thought-out garden requires some pre-planning I offer a selection of annual and tropical seeds that are guaranteed to perform quickly, fill in those gaps, and provide additional interest once your perennials have gone dormant or simply finished flowering.
