Powder Puff at SGB, Okinawa (Calliandra haematocephala)

As opposed to the Bottle Brush (common name) plant this I think is known as the "Scubbing Brush plant"!! Saw it on the island of Grenada

Peter:

This shrub is called Calliandra haematocephala - Powder Puff. They are widely grown here in San Diego, CA. and bloom in late fall through early spring.
