I brought a flowering plant at the store called powder puffs. There wasn't a tag in the flower telling me when they will bloom. Can you tell me a little about them? They are doing fine in my garden but I am seeing no
blooms.

Calliandra is commonly called the Powder Puff. It's native to Bolivia and grows quickly to about 10 feet high with an equal spread. Big puffs (2-3 inches across) are produced from October -March. The plant likes lots of sunshine and warmth, and may need protection from extremely cold weather.
