It's hot. It's dry. It's August. It's particularly hot and dry THIS August. But good news! It's time for one of the stars of the late summer garden---cleomes.
I have some I grew from seed. I have some I bought as bedding plants. The seed ones have withstood this horrible summer better than the others.
I LOVE cleome's spidery exuberance.
