Common Name: Mexican Flame Bush
Availabilty: In Stock
The Mexican Flame Bush as it is more commonly known (or the Calliandra tweedii for those so inclined) is a popular evergreen that grows 500-900mm tall. Unique, bright-red tassel flowers bloom in the warmer months and the foliage has a very attractive weeping habit. This is an ideal garden addition for a variance of colour, and mixes well with other plants to add interest and contrast.
Perfect for use as a groundcover, in rockeries and the weeping foliage is simply gorgeous grown over embankments.
Mildly frost & wind tolerant. Hardy to dry conditions. Most well drained soils; mulch in summer. Full sun or part shade.
