Artist's Description

‘pom-pom’ actually hits the nail on the head in terms of trying to describe this flower. the plant is a species of calliandra, and their common names include the terms ‘powderpuff’, ‘fairy duster’ and ‘tassel flower’ (i know, could they be any gayer? :), depending on which particular species they are. calliandras are ‘exotic’ to australia as their origins are in south and central america. not that this matters, for they are excellent plants, which provide some colour for long periods of time throughout the year and they are very drought resistant as well. mostly shrubs or small trees, there are some species that have a prostrate groundcover-type growth as well.
all of the above text from our brisbane website
I have made some minor enhancements in literoom but really, the colour is quite accurate albeit it little bit more vibrant. it makes it look almost electric…

this is also available as part of my for the love of flowers calendar.
