You have the most interesting and unusual, to me, plants. Thanks for sharing another fascinating and beautiful one with us.

Can you show us what the whole plant looks like?

I did go and look at that earlier and it is a really good looking plant. The other plant in the DB looks like it has different leaf shape.
Are they the same plant?

They sure don't look to be the same; I may have to do some investigating which one of us is in error... thanks for pointing that out!

Looking at other pictures on the web it appears my plant may be mislabeled *Blush*
I have proposed the image to be moved to Calliandra riparia. Thanks for noticing!!
