Calliandra tweedii - Red Powderpuff

29,95€ Tax included

In Winter a delay in delivery may appear because of night temperature! The weight of the plant in kg corresponds with the capacity of the pot in liter.

The name Calliandra translated literally means ‘beautiful man’ (gr.: kallos = beautiful, andros = man). The shrub’s flowers consist of fire-red, 3 to 4 cm long stamen that form a semi-circle with a diameter of 5 to 7 cm, thus resembling a powder-puff. This exotic bloom raises above fine acacia-like pinnate leaves with a silvery fluff and it is the reason for the plant’s attractiveness for balcony & terrace as well as greenhouse. Furthermore, the bloom can last from spring to autumn - with a pause during the hottest weeks in summer. The branches with their light-grey bark are slender, flexible and bend elegantly at the tip. Even one more characteristic adds to this South American evergreen’s attractiveness: at night, or - in case of a drought - also during daytime, the pinnate leaves fold up. As soon as the plant gets enough light and water, the pinnates will unfold again.
