Yellow Bird of Paradise
Deciduous, Evergreen, Shrubs, Trees
Ferny-leafed plants grown for branch-end clusters of colorful blossoms featuring (except in the case of Caesalpinia platyloba) protruding stamens. Plants grow quickly and easily in hot, sunny locations if given light, well-drained soil and infrequent, deep watering. Prune before first flush of spring growth to remove any dead or damaged wood and wayward branches; remove lower limbs for treelike shape in shrubby species. Blooms attract hummingbirds.Caesalpinia gilliesii
