Similar to C. pulcherrima, but the flowers on this species are nicer. They are bigger and brighter. Very striking yellow, orange, and red flowers in the same bunch. It blooms in the summer time.

This variety of dwarf poinciana also has a blu-ish color hint to the leaves, very attractive!

This variety of Caesalpinia also does not grow as big as the regular dwarf poinciana and no where as large as the royal poinciana. On average, they grow only to 4-5 feet tall. This is a perfect shrub or small tree for small yards or containers.

It grows outside in tropical locations in full to partial sun, it likes average water, fertilizing, and pruning.

It is a more unusual variety not always found for sale.
