Homegrown Peacock Flower

Caesalpinia pulcherrima (Peacock Flower) in our garden, Oct 2005 Peacock flower also known as Caesalpinia pulcherrima: this attractive fast growing shrub, cultivated from seeds given by my brother, now stands about 3 feet in our garden.

It’ll soon outshine its surrounding plants and it’s definitely an attention grabber with its showy and striking blossoms of yellow and orange-red.

Known to flower throughout most of the year and grow to about 8-12 feet tall, my spouse (who’s also an avid gardener) and I are glad that it’s grown on ground to maximize its potential. Nevertheless, we wouldn’t want it to shoot too tall in our small front yard, and becomes unsightly, though.
