You can request
a “Hold Order” for Hardy Perennials and we will ship them
when it’s planting time in your zone. Otherwise, Hardy
Perennials can be kept in a cool or cold spot like an unheated
garage, cool cellar or outbuilding. Cover the pot and soil
with insulating material (burlap, clean rags, newspaper) and
check the soil every 2-3 weeks to make sure it doesn’t dry
out completely. In the spring, plant as soon as the ground
is open and no longer frozen. Dormant plants can endure
freezing temperatures in the spring as long as the plant
remains dormant without any green buds.
Pink Powder Puff (Calliandra emarginata)
Fill the growing area with a year-round splash of color. These pink flowers bear a resemblance to exploding fireworks and yet they display a "powder puff" delicacy. This cultivar has an upright habit and never stops flowering even during the darkest days of winter. A plant that is easily shaped and pruned, it can be maintained at a manageable size indefinitely.
Hardy to Zone 10 and higher for outdoors.
Full sun, grows to 2-4’ in container, minimum
temperature 45°, everbloomer.
Quick shipping & packaged with care. Pink powder puff was healthy upon arrival. I repotted per instructions after a couple days & placed next to a sunny window. Once spring arrived I moved the pot outside on my front porch where it only recieves morning & early afternoon sun, & it seems to love these hot, humid summer days in VA. I was surprised to see it has already begun to bloom!
