Calliandra haematocephala, or Red Pom Pom, is a tall, attractive shrub with arching branches and a slightly spreading habit. The flower heads are both spectacular and slightly fragrant and consist of thousands of red stamens that stand perfectly erect to make an orb. The oblong-shaped, glossy foliage emerges as a bronze colour turning to mid-green upon maturity. The leaves have an unusual feature - they fold up at night! Ideal for use in borders and shrubberies and as a specimen plant. A light trim after flowering will keep it dense, neat and tidy.

Soil: Well-drained soil. Avoid waterlogged areas.
Conditions: Prefers full sun but can handle some shade throughout the day - shade becoming more important in warmer climates. Shelter from frost in winter.
Size: Height 3.5m x width 4m
