Caesalpinia gilliesii, commonly known as Desert Bird Of Paradise is a shrub/small tree that is a perfect water-wise choice for a landscape. It is prettiest when pruned out as a very small , multi-trunk tree. Soft, lacy, fernlike foliage provides the back-drop for exotic yellow flowers with long, protruding red “feathery” stamens that bloom repeatedly for most of spring through fall. Loves full sun; drought tolerant when established. Excellent as a mountain, valley or desert plant. Distasteful to deer. Will go winter deciduous in colder climates.
