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.
