CAPPARACEAE, The Caper family or
CLEOMACAEAE, The Cleome family, depending on how forward-thinking or backwards you want to be.
This North American annual is a great attractor of beneficial insects! Despite it’s name, it’s widespread across the midwest and west including most of Canada. It can reseed itself and is sometimes considered a little weedy. I learned today in Permaculture Design course that it is a good plant to include in some types of guilds. It’s a really pretty plant and like other Cleome, would make a nice cut flower.
