I killed the cleome I think

I had planted a bunch of cleome to close together so I tried moving some of them out of the container and around to the back of the building. It took them less than a half an hour to bend over and wilt. I guess they can't be transplanted can they?

Don't be discouraged so quickly, Tammy!
I have moved them too, and they do pout and wilt for a while, but if they are not in direct hot sun, they should perk up in a day or two. If they are in direct sun, can you shield them a bit for a day or so?

they are in a pretty shady location but I'll see what I can do to add a little more shade. Thankyou for the info. I thought I had done them in. They wilted so fast it was amazing.

Remember about some "transplanting juice"
one quick shot the day or so before you're going
to move it *if you know you are going to do it*
And when you transplant, make sure the area is watered once after transplanting, then water them with the liquid fert...and even do it one or two days after.. *doesn't have to be fullllll strength..* but just something...

Joanne, Cleome isn't a bulb plant. You can grow it from seeds and once it grows in your flowerbeds, it will self-seed profusely. [Wink]

I've been hoping Tammy would post a picture or two of them now that they should be in full bloom.

I think so too. TK, mine are very tall. What kind of container do you grow yours in? I'll bet they make a pretty container plant if you have a container that can hold them. And they do reseed - a lot.

Sheri - that is definitely a cleome - and what a beautiful color - I've never seen that color before!

Mine are shades of purple and lavendar mostly too, but I do have one plant the is white with pink in the centers - I've been trying to get a good picture, but they don't want to cooperate. Maybe later today if the rain stops.

I have white ones this year (first time growing them) and just LOVE them. I would really like more colors so if anyone wants to trade, PM me. I have oodles of seed pods right now that should be ready in a few weeks.

I was able to get some shots on this cloudy day.
I started out with all purple a few years ago - don't know where this lighter pink one mutated from...

 -

A purple baby that sprouted late this summer:
 -

More purple that sprouted earlier this summer, next to my yellow dwarf cannas:
 -

All these plants were volunteers from 2 years ago - I pulled all the volunteers out last year! So the seeds made it over 2 winters to sprout this summer!!!
