Pink Powder Puff - Calliandra haematocephala

Pink Powder Puff – Calliandra haematocephala
Location: Backyard & Orchard

This large evergreen shrub can be espalier as seen on the Orchard wall or allowed to grow into a large shrub that almost attains a small tree stature as in the backyard. Follow the perimeter walkway to the back wall and these powder puffs of color will catch your attention. They are very popular with hummingbirds so you might also encounter avian dive bombers establishing territory.
