These evergreen shrubs or trees are grown mainly for their flowers' long silky stamens, 10-100 per flower, that form big watermelon-red puff balls from fall to early spring. Each leaf is composed of 5-10 pairs of elliptic, glossy, dark green leaflets. The lax growth of this species makes it well suited to espaliering.
