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.

Peacock flower is believed to be native to the West Indies and tropical America.
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.
