Cleome (Clio) Magenta is native to South America. Our cultivar is part of the Danziger breeding program. This annual is a sun lover and functions really well as an outdoor plant in warm-weather climates, attracting both hummingbirds and butterflies. In a landscape application, it is normally used as a border or edge crop and provides a great ground cover. It is also ideal in a floor pot or combination planter for retail sales. It has excellent branching and a strong, upright structure. With long and continuous flowering and great garden performance, this is an excellent plant to add to your spring collection.
For best results with Cleome, use a constant feed program of 200-300 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.7- 6.3 and an EC level between 1-2.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
