Could you please let me know the name of this native tree which is growing near where I live. It is about 8 feet tall and is fairly wide-spread and is flowering right now.
I’m excited that I’ve managed to strike one seed but it is growing incredibly slowly. I’ve given it some blood & bone so hopefully that will help it grow.
Any tips for assisting its growth would be appreciated. Thank you.
Hi Solara, This is Calliandra tweedii (sometimes called the Powder Puff shrub). No tips as it is easy to grow, just full sun and weekly watering. Don
