Dwarf Powder Puff (Calliandra emarginata)

The name 'Calliandra' means beautiful stamens. The Dwarf Powder Puff has light green kidney shaped leaflets. Posted by Picasa


  1. isnt this flower called mimosa as well? i like it

    and i also love your blue butterfly plea from yesterday.

    congratulations on you 102 post :)

  2. A nice bright flower. Are they quite common in the Mumbai area?

  3. Beautiful 'Calliandra' have taken picture from Mumbai or elsewhere.....thanks for visiting

  4. This is where I found mimosa flowers.

    I think the red/pink mimosa flowers look like Dwarf Powder Puff but the foilage is different.
    I've taken photos of all the flowers in the garden area of my complex in Navi Mumbai.

  5. I think I know this plant, although we don't have it in Moscow. Very nice one.

    And thank you for visiting my blog.
