Pride of Barbados/Bird of paradise


Caesalpinia pulcherrima

Red Bird of Paradise, or Pride of Barbados, is a returning perennial shrub in zone 8, or an evergreen in frost free zones. It is drought and heat resistant, and will suffer in poorly draining soil. It does not produce an edible fruit, but it is a nitrogen fixer, so it will help feed your fruit-bearing trees and shrubs. Its beautiful flower attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
