About Rocky Mountain Beeplant (Wild Cleome)

Cleome serrulata

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed
Also known as Spider Flower, Pink Queen, Grandfather Whiskers

Rocky Moutain Beeplant, as the name suggests, is a favorite among native pollinators–including hummingbirds. Also known as Wild Cleome, this North American wildflower has a unique look to it—the blooms consist of clusters of tiny purple florets sitting atop each stem that open from the bottom up to the top. If beauty alone isn’t enough for Eden Brothers’ Rocky Mountain Beeplant to win you over, know that the herb has been used for millennia as a food source and as medicine for ailments like stomachache and fever.
