NB81 Peacock flower, Pride of Barbados. Caesalpinia pulcherrima
Common names for this species include Poinciana, Pride of Barbados , Red Bird
of Paradise, Mexican Bird of Paradise, Dwarf Poinciana, and flamboyan-de-jardin.
It is a shrub growing to 3 m tall, native to tropical America. It is a
striking ornamental plant, widely grown in tropical gardens. It is also the
national flower of the Caribbean island of Barbados, and is depicted on the
Queen's personal Barbadian flag.
Peacock flower is an evergreen shrub or small tree in frost free climates, a deciduous shrub in zone 9, and a returning perennial in zone 8. In the tropics it gets 15-20' tall and its ungainly, wide spreading branches can cover about the same width. In cultivation peacock flower is usually 8-12' tall, growing that large even after freezing to the ground the previous winter. The stem, branches and petioles are armed with sharp spines and the leaves are fernlike and twice compound, with many small, oval leaflets.
Peacock flower lives up to its name with incredibly showy blossoms of orange and red. The flowers are bowl shaped, 2-3" across, with five crinkled, unequal red and orange petals, and ten prominent bright red stamens that extend way beyond the corolla. The flowers are borne in terminal clusters 8-10" tall throughout most of the year in tropical climates and in late summer and fall where frosts occur. There also are forms with yellow and forms with dark red flowers. The fruits, typical legumes, are flat, 3-4" long, and when ripe they split open noisily to expose the little brown beans.
