Maintenance Notes: 

Unlike other cleome Senorita Blanca will not self seed, doesn't get bare knees, she isn't sticky and the doesn't have thorns. Her flowers are smaller than classic cleome, but she flowers all over the plant not just at the top. Since she doesn't self seed you don't have to worry about cleome seedlings trying to take over your garden. She is great for adding height to garden beds and had dark green foliage. Deadheading isn't necessary.

An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

Gardeners have grown to love the Proven Winners line of cleomes because they are thornless, seedless, odorless, and not sticky. Señorita Blanca produces showy, pure white blooms all season. She is a superb plant for the landscape where her vigorous growth and heat, humidity, and drought tolerance make her a shining star.
