This species has dwarf growth habit, and blooms year round. The plant is always covered with flowers. The name Calliandra means "beautiful stamens", and several of the approximately 150 shrubs and small trees belonging to this genus are grown for their dense heads of pink or white silky stamens that appear on short stalks along the upper sides of the branches. Propagation is easier from seeds, cuttings are also possible. The name Calliandra comes from the Greek for 'beautiful stamens'. The globular flowerheads can be up to 2.5 inches in diameter (6 cm).

This plant can be trained either in a small standard tree or a nice round bush.
