Rocky Mountain Beeplant
Cleome serrulata

'Rocky Mountain Beeplant' was collected and catalogued along the Vermillion River in South Dakota on August 25, 1804 by Lewis and Clark's "Corps of Discovery" expedition. Also known by the common names of 'Beeweed', 'Stinking Clover', 'Bee Spider-flower', 'Skunk weed', and 'Navajo Spinach', this North American native annual wildflower grows in forests, foothills, prairies, and in disturbed ground such as along roadways. It can be found growing wild in all of the Canadian provinces as well as most of the United States.

It is a great choice for people wishing to attract pollinating insects onto their property as it is attractive to many species as a food source. Annual. Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 30 seeds.
