Calliandra Surinamensis 'Dixie Pink' 80-100cm Standard 3L Pot
Covered in huge, watermelon-pink, fluffy flowers, and a relative of the mimosa, it's not surprising that Calliandra is also known as the Powder Puff Tree.
The fragrant pink blooms of 'Dixie Pink' resemble giant powder puffs and are composed of hundreds of pink stamens emerging from a white centre, which is what gives them their characteristic appearance. As an added bonus, the foliage is just as attractive with the finely divided, feathery leaves emerging flushed pink before maturing to darker green. At night the leaves fold up which kids find fascinating. As a south American native, Calliandra is a definite sun lover, and best grown where it can be kept in a sunny position and moved into a greenhouse or conservatory over winter as it is hardy to around -4C. In fact, it's so suited for container growing that it is often selected as a specimen for bonsai.
