    Hello, folks.

    I saw this in London Ontario. Just wondering if someone may recognize and identify it for me. Cheers!

    Cleome hassleriana cultivar. Often called Cat's Whiskers or Spider Flower.

    Cat's Whiskers usually refers to Orthosiphon aristatus from Lamiaceae.
    Some people, probably, confuse Spider Flower with it and call the cleome Cat's Whisker, too.
