The Red Bird of Paradise Plant

The Red Bird of Paradise plant (Caesalpinia pulcherrima) is also called the Mexican red bird of paradise and the pride of Barbados.  A spectacular flowering plant that produces beautiful bright red/orange blooms and thrives in hot climates. The fern-like small-sized foliage resembles a Mesquite bush or a fern shrub.  If you are looking for that tropical landscape look, then, this is the plant to use. But before you add these pants to your landscape area, there are a few things to know.  The Red of Paradise plant.
