I love this tree and I´d like to grow it at home.
I have pink and red calliandras, but not this one.
Can anyone tell me where to buy seeds of white calliandra? I
Thanks for your attention,

Milouska:

I'm not sure if this variety can be grown from seed. I think it's a hybrid which needs to be grown by air-layering or cuttings.

Thanks, Delonix1, for your information. Anyway, I'd like to try to sow white calliandra seeds to see the result.
Has anyone here got the variety I'm interested in? Or do you know anybody who grows it?
Many thanks,

Milouska

Milouska:

This plant is available in nurseries here in San Diego, CA. Not sure about the availability on the internet.

Thanks again, Delonix1!
In fact I can´t find them on the Net.

Milouska:

I think the reason why it's so difficult to find seeds on the internet...because the white variety is grafted.
