Calliandra eriophylla

Pink Fairy Duster

This tough native shrub occurs on dry rocky hills at elevations from 2000-5000 feet. Tiny ferny green-gray leaves drop in the winter or in extreme summer drought to expose the the densely-branched form. Light pink to white powder puff flowers appear for a short time in the spring. This plant is cold, heat and drought tolerant, but prefers coarse well-drained soil.
