General Information

Family: Fabaceae (Leguminosae) - Pea or Legume
Native to Bolivia. Grows fast to 10 feet or more with equal spread. Its beauty has carried it into harsher areas than zones 22 - 24*; in zones 13 and 16 - 21 it requires special protection of over hang or warm sunny wall. In form, it's a natural espalier. Foliage not as feathery as that of C. tweedii **; leaflets longer, broader, and darker -- glossy copper when new, turning to dark metallic green. Big puffs (2 - 3 inches across) of silky stamens, watermelon pink, are produced October - March. (1)
* Western Garden zones as opposed to USDA zones - Pasadena is zone 21.
** Trinidad flame bush, or Brazilian flame bush
