Mexican Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia mexicana)

DESCRIPTION

Correctly called Mexican Bird of Paradise, they can easily be shaped as a full dense shrub or screen, or allowed to grow into a small natural canopy tree. The yellow flowers come in waves continuously during the growing season. Removing dead flowers will reduce litter from seeds and promote faster re-bloom. There are several names for the Mexican Bird of Paradise including Yellow Bird of Paradise and Evergreen Bird of Paradise.

The Mexican Bird of Paradise flourishes in full sun and is very drought tolerant after becoming established with deep water.

Bonus: Although rarely seen, they can be grown in pots too!
