     (More Info)
  • Calliandra 'Dixie Pink', commonly known as the Powder Puff Tree are hardy and bushy ornamental tree which produce striking watermelon-pink flowers alongside copper-green coloured foliage in Spring. Trained into a ‘lollipop’ single stem, these Calliandra trees are perfect to sit solitary in small gardens, patios, borders or mixed containers.
  • 'Dixie Pink' lollipop trees can reach an optimum height of around 180cm and spread of around 100cm over a 10-20 year period. Be sure to plant in moderately fertile, well-drained soil and position in full sun or partial shade to give it the best opportunity to thrive.
  • Due to the trees hardy and bushy structure, they’re a fairly low maintenance plant to monitor. It’s recommended to prune lightly towards the end of Springtime to encourage fresh, variegated growth and to maintain shape form for the following season. The tree requires frequent watering until it has been established in its new environment, then just average watering after it's settled in. Be sure not to over-hydrate and make sure the tree doesn't dry out.
  • The Powder Puff Tree is valued all year round for their stunning display of bright coloured leaves and foliage. Emerging in Spring with maturing shades of pink and green before entering their flourishing season during Summer where these bright colours take over the tree - this gives it a fresh and vibrant look, making them very pleasing on the eye. As the second half of the year hits, the tree will keep its strong green colours, due to being evergreen and the cycle will start over.

Calliandra 'Dixie Pink' ornamental trees present large watermelon-pink, fluffy flowers which resemble giant powder puffs - this is where they get the nickname 'Powder Puff'. The blooms emerge from a white centre which adds to their characteristic appearance. Furthermore, the trees grow to be very fragrant, which will attract various bees, butterflies and other pollinating wildlife to your garden.

The foliage of the tree is just as attractive with their flushed pink, feathery leaves when emerging which turn to dark green once matured. Being a native South American plant, Calliandra trees love being out in the sun, and are best grown in full sun or partial shaded locations. Over the Winter period, it is recommended to move the tree inside to a greenhouse or conservatory.
