It grows in direct sunlight, pink and white in color
That is Cleome hassleriana. There are other colors, some of which can be seen at http://www.botanicalstockphotos.com/cat841.htm .
Cleome is also called spider plant. It reseeds readily!
Cleome is correct. I planted some seed about 10 years ago and they STILL come up in my garden even now! Up north they grow to a reasonable height. Down here, I’ve had them 4′ to 5′ tall! Smell like onions when you pull them up.
