Southern Gardening: Senorita Rosalita, Sparkler cleomes great fillers
One of the flowering plants I remember from my youth is the cleome. I loved these tall plants with flowers I thought looked a little spidery.
Many years later, when I rediscovered cleome growing in my neighbor’s yard, I reached out for a closer look at the flowers and was suddenly reminded of the one aspect I did not like about these plants. I had forgotten about the thorns and had impaled my thumb.
Senorita Rosalita cleome is an exciting thornless cleome that was introduced several years ago for the garden and landscape. It is a strong summer performer across the Southeast, blooming freely all summer long. In 2009, Senorita Rosalita was selected as a Mississippi Medallion winner. In 2012 Louisiana Super Plant status was conferred on this plant.
Did I mention that the plant does not have thorns?
