The stem, branches and petioles are armed with sharp spines and the leaves are fern-like, Peacock flower lives up to its name with incredibly showy blossoms of orange red. The flowers are bowl shaped, 2-3" across, with five crinkled petals, and ten prominent stamens that extend way beyond the corolla. The flowers are borne in terminal clusters 8-10" tall throughout most of the year in tropical climates and in late summer and fall where frosts occur.

Caesalpinia is very easy to grow in alkaline to acidic, well-drained soils. And is a fast growing, in Full sun to partial shade. Full sun, drought tolerant.
