I do love annuals but do not plant to many. Most require lots of sun and water. My sunny areas I choose to plant vegetables and with a strict water ban I have to conserve water somewhere. Cleome-Also called Spider Plants. These are very beautiful tall (28") annuals. Cleome like sun and ordinary soil. They form a large ball on the top of the foliage, the flower ball has lots of tiny flower petals in white and every shade of pink with lots of long stamen threads all over the flower. They form a beautiful display when planted in groups. Every flower has it own character, some all white with a touch of pink on the top, some starting out white on the bottom of the flower to the most deepest pink on the top.
