I wandered around the garden this morning to find the miniature Poinciana blooming! Also know as Mexican Bird of Paradise, Caesalpinia pulcherrima, is a tender but large shrub that will bloom from now until October. It grows to about 10 feet tall in my garden. This plant was given to me by friends, Jim and Sue, and does beautiful in poor soil and hot weather! (Of which, I have an abundance!) It grows easily from seed and may be a little bit aggresive for some people. I find that the sprouts are easily removed and that it is worth the extra "weeding".
