Señorita Rosalita® Cleome | Proven Winners

Gardeners have grown to love the Proven Winners line of cleomes because they are thornless, seedless, odorless, and not sticky. The magnificent dark leaves on Señorita Rosalita's 3-5 feet tall upright branches are topped by clusters of bright, lavender-pink flowers. And they bloom with abandon from late spring through fall. She scoffs at heat and renounces all thorns and sticky substances. Deadheading is no more. All she asks is that you plant her in full sun in a place where water drains freely through the soil.

Maintenance Notes: 

Unlike other cleome Senorita Blanca will not self-seed, doesn't get bare knees, she isn't sticky, and doesn't have thorns. Her flowers are smaller than classic cleome, but she flowers all over the plant not just at the top. Since she doesn't self-seed you don't have to worry about cleome seedlings trying to take over your garden. She is great for adding height to garden beds and had dark green foliage. Deadheading isn't necessary.
