Cleome Serrulata

Cleome serrulata, also known as Rocky Mountain beeplant/beeweed, stinking-clover, bee spider-flower, skunk weed, Navajo spinach, and guaco, is native to southern Canada and the western and central United States. This plant has historically found use as food, as a dye, and as traditional medical treatment. We saw these plants during our recent visit to the Indianapolis downtown.

This flowering plant has a very bizarre look to it – locals know this plant as the spider flower!
