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.

Re: mystery to me

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.
