I first saw the flowering shrub at Clarkfield but Facebook probably erased the old photos! So this moring I took photos of calliandras at QC Memorial Circle and was fortunate to find a white one! Here are the red-white ones.
And here is a pure white one!
The most common (my observation) are the pure red ones.
There is a smaller variety of calliandra I have seen. It has the botanical name "Calliandra emarginata".
