Calliandra x Sierra Starr® PP# 15387

Sierra Starr® is a hybrid between Calliandra eriophylla (Pink Fairy Duster) and Calliandra californica (Baja Fairy Duster). This clone blooms on and off all year with stunning bright red flowers, which are irresistible to hummingbirds. It has a uniform, dense growth habit and a moderate growth rate. It is much more densely-branched than Calliandra californica. Because it is a clone, Sierra Starr® may be planted successfully in semi-formal rows and masses. It performs best in full sun, and thrives in reflected heat exposures. The stems are hardy to about 18° F and the plant is root hardy to at least 15° F.
