White and One Pink

I have been trying all summer to get a pure white Cleome with out pink in it and here it is: This Cleome has the smell of a skunk ( or is it just me?) Oh well there will be lots of seed for spring.
The Pope John Paul II is blooming small roses now

They still smell nice and sweet

Poor little coneflower is doing it's best : This is all I have blooming from all the flowers from summer.
It looks like rain and cooler today maybe fall is about to get here. Happy day to you all

I have only managed to get one cleome plant from seed a few years ago and I do not remember if I even smelled it for fragrance.
The white is so pretty Patsy.
I have got to look up Bennie's Pope Paul and see if it grows in my zone 5. That rose bush has bloomed for you all summer.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I know you have wanted a white cleome for a long time - good for you Patsy! The roses are so pretty. Hope you do get a taste of Autumn this weekend. Love you, Mildred

What is it about pure white that makes it so special? I love it! Thank you for introducing me to a 'white cleome'...its very pretty. I don't think I've seen one before or if I did, didn't know what it was.


Beautiful ! Have a great weekend !
