Notes:

Plant about 3 feet tall and narrow, this one pink flower at top, ribbed leaves as seen. I believe it generates quite a few seeds for additional plants. Seeds were given to me, but now I can’t get details.

    Hi Ralph, I just now saw your post. Yes, seeds are not all equal in their germination process. Some are easier than others, then when the right time to sow seeds for different blooming seasons. This is still hit & miss thing in my garden. This link below has great information for how to planting Cleome seeds. Best wishes Ralph! http://www.2bseeds.com/cleomeindex.shtml

    You nailed that one. Thanks! I’m always at a loss as whether to sow seeds in the fall or spring. Is there any rule of thumb or does it vary from plant to plant?

    Maybe a type of spider flower (Cleome). This might be C. hassleriana? You will know more when the flowers open. If this isn’t that , make new post with photo of opened blooms. Best wishes! http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/weeds/plants/spider_flower.htm
