It’s baaaack! I’ve been seeing these plants pop up over the past month as the land drinks in the winter rains. Not to be confused with several species of Cleome spp. grown in flower gardens, the spider wisp (Cleome gynandra) is yet another example of highly nutrition wild greens and medicine considered a “weed” to those not in the know. Originating from Africa, it can now be found in tropical and subtropical locations around the globe.
