Calliandra Tergemina

Calliandra is a genus of about 200 species of flowering plants in the family Fabaceae, subfamily Mimosoideae, native to tropical and subtropical regions of southern Asia, Africa and the Americas. We have plenty of them here in Miami. For some reason, it is quite hard to find detailed information about this plant on the internet. Its common names are Powderpuff and Fairy-Duster. I hope Tog will not come to tell me that this is the wrong name again.

No, you have done it perfectly. Mimosa puts on a bigger show but the color of your plant is superior. Oh oh I just made a judgment that others may think is faulty.
