Polanisia dodecandra (Redwhisker Clammyweed) [20 Seeds]

(1 customer review)


Germination Information: Sometimes these seeds germinate quickly when sown in warm conditions, but giving them a chilling period seems to produce more reliable results. I recommend sowing (about 1/4″ deep) outdoors in late fall to early spring, so they get exposed to cold temperatures and can then sprout when they’re ready.

Commonly known as redwhisker clammyweed or dwarf cleome, Polanisia dodecandra grows to about 2 feet tall and blooms from midsummer into fall. The white flowers have long, pinkish stamens that give them a whiskery appearance. The name “clammy” part of the common name comes from the stickiness of the leaves and stems and “weed” from the fact that it can self-sow freely, but here, at least, it’s never been troublesome. U.S. native; ecotype unknown. Full sun. Annual.

Harvested in August and September 2022. At least 20 seeds.
