It's November and cooler temps are here. This has caused our Powder Puff (Calliandra haematocephala) tree to decorate itself for Christmas. From now until spring it will be covered in big red powder puffs.
the research sites say it grows 3 to 6 feet and the same around. I have measured ours and it is more than 20 feet tall and bigger than that around. The gardeners must not live in FL. I have seen them much taller than mine in Jungle Gardens.

This evergreen tree has showy flowers that attracts birds, even humming birds, lots of bees and lots of butterflies.One year when it was only about 8 feet tall, we put white lights in it for viewing from our kitchen at night. (note:if you have dogs, do not do this, they run through the lights and jerk them off)
