Red Fairy Duster

Calliandra Californica

Plant one of these low-maintenance beauties and forget about messy hummingbird feeders and sugar water! The red, will have hummingbirds visiting your garden from early spring through fall while furnishing your garden with color nearly year-round. Exceptional heat and drought tolerance, ferny semi-evergreen foliage and the open, rounded form of this shrub make it a versatile choice; a perfect fit in natural landscapes, or as a specimen in the more manicured garden. For best results, provide with good drainage, at least 6 hours of full sun, and irrigate once a month.
