Great name - I see you managed to get a photo of another calliandra.

Yes, it's one of the native calliandra. It is also pretty when in bloom which is in Summer...a contrast to all the other species which bloom heavily in Fall/Winter.

So I'm thinking that if it's a native it might be from around 'Baja' - is that an area in California?

It is native from Southern California into Baja California (Mexico)....which is just across the border. The Mexican border is less than 15 miles south from my house.
