I hope its a fluke. Leaves turn yellow around aug 15, so we're getting close.

Are those the seed pods on the cleome? I'm growing this white right now. Yours is really tall GT. Mine is only about 3 ft tall.

Those are the seed pods. I got loads. I found a six pack this year at one house, and then saw the ones in the house I got this from. Six pack plants are about 3inch and the ones at the other are in 3 inch pots and already 1ft. They either start them early to get like this or just the larger pot so they grow quick. This one was a good 4ft tall. The six pack ones are more likely to branch looks like, I'm trying them this year. The bigs are going to be amaranthus this year, right next to those big cleomes. :-).
