Baja Fairy Duster (Calliandra californica)
The Calliandra californica aka ‘Baja Fairy Duster’ is a fast-growing, thornless, small to medium shrub. Its bright red brushy flowers compliment the soft ferny foliage that makes this popular hummingbird destination a must have in your yard. Blooming spring through fall, this shrub grows well in the desert and sub-tropical landscapes with little-required maintenance.
Water deeply in well-drained soil and allow to dry between watering. The Calliandra californica does not like soggy soil and prefers to be planted in full to part sun.
