Calliandra haemotocepha or Dwarf Powder Puff Plant is a fairly fast growing, flowering, semi-tropical shrub that is related to Mimosas. It is one of a few dozen cultivars of the unique and interesting species. The naming of this cultivar as a Dwarf variety is a somewhat relative term, although it will mature into a good sized plant with a mature size of about 3 to 5 feet if left to its own devices, it grows smaller than several of the other types.

The prolific scarlet red puff ball shaped flowers begin as small clustered buds that resemble small berries, and are present throughout the warm season beginning in the very early spring and lasting until the nights drop into the 40's and 50's in the Fall. The flowers are very attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.
The Dwarf Powder Puff Plant grows bushy and upright with multiple, thin, cane like branches and unusual medium sized oval, pinnate leaves, that fold together like praying hands at night.

Use it as hedge, boundary, mixed perennial background, or potted plant. It is a frequent choice for bonsai culture.
