Product Description

 Caesalpinia pulcherrima, commonly known as Pride of Barbados, Red Bird of Paradise, or Dwarf Poinciana, is a vibrant and ornamental flowering shrub or small tree native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas. This plant is celebrated for its stunning and flamboyant display of colorful flowers, making it a popular choice for gardens, landscaping, and as an ornamental potted plant.

The most striking feature of Caesalpinia pulcherrima is its showy and eye-catching flowers. These blossoms are typically a fiery combination of red, orange, and yellow, with long, slender petals that resemble the plumage of a tropical bird. The flowers are arranged in large clusters, creating a visually stunning effect when in full bloom.

The foliage of Pride of Barbados consists of compound leaves with multiple leaflets, providing a lush backdrop for the vibrant flowers. The leaves are typically green but can have a slightly blue-green tint, adding to the plant's overall appeal.

This plant is well-suited to warm, tropical climates and thrives in full sun and well-drained soils. It is known for its drought tolerance once established, making it a suitable choice for xeriscaping and landscapes in regions with hot, dry summers.

In addition to its remarkable appearance, Caesalpinia pulcherrima is a favorite of pollinators, attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to the garden. The plant typically blooms from late spring through fall, adding a burst of color and activity to the garden during this period.

Pride of Barbados is often used as a specimen plant, in mass plantings, or as a focal point in tropical and subtropical gardens, where it adds a touch of exotic beauty and vivaciousness to the landscape. Its relatively low maintenance requirements and exceptional visual appeal make it a cherished addition to many outdoor spaces.
