Artist's Description

The Red Powder Puff plant (Calliandra haematocephala) is a shrub native of tropical America that can reach 15 feet or more in height. Each flower is a spectacular vivid crimson pompom about 2 inches in diameter. These flowers have no apparent scent, but are nevertheless constantly visited by hummingbirds, bees and other insects. This image shows a single bloom, with its red stamens glowing against a dark background.
