Calliandra californica (Red or Baja Fairy Duster), is an evergreen, woody shrub which is native to Baja California. It grows best in full sun and is drought tolerant once established, needing only 10 inches of water every year. Additional watering will encourage C. californica to bloom through summer, and again in the fall.
