Artist's Description

The botanical name for Red Bird of Paradise is Caesalpinia pulcherrima. In the Phoenix area, many people refer to this red and orange version as the Mexican Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia mexicana) which actually has all yellow flowers. The Red Bird of Paradise is an evergreen shrub that enjoys full sun and has bright yellow flowers, with orange and red centers that grow out of long, thin stalks. The leaves are ferny-looking. The Red Bird of Paradise is a fairly fast grower, and can get large, so periodic trimming is suggested. Red Bird of Paradise will do well in any soil, but the better drainage you have the healthier the plant will be.
