Caesalpinia coriaria
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Diva-Diva, Divi-divi
Origin: Aruba, Curacao
Can be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliageYellow/orange flowers

Medium size tree from Aruba, very often seen in pictures with windswept shapes near the ocean. This is the national tree of Curacao. In sheltered locations, the tree is symmetrical with a spreading mounded top. Exposed to the prevailing winds, however, it leans away from the wind, and its top, growing mostly to the lee side, appears to be blown out horizontally in the wind. The Divi-Divi is quite easy. There is nothing really special in their care. Perhaps just some protection if the temperature dips bellow 35F. The basic requirements are full to partial sun, average water, and fertilizer. Divi-Divi flowers during the warm weather, but the flowers are not very showy. The really beauty of the plant resides on their delicate fine leaves. It has beautiful reddish/pink new growth and the shapes that can be achieved by trimming, thus making it one of the favorite trees for bonsai training.

Caesalpinia granadillo

Bridalveil Tree, Brown Ebony
Origin: Central America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterYellow/orange flowers

In summer and fall, Caesalpinia granadillo is decorated with showy yellow blossoms. Planted as an ornamental street tree in tropical regions for its beautiful bark and stately appearance. Makes a wonderful shade tree, the 35-foot-high tree clothed with finely textured, pinnately compound, evergreen leaves. The bark is also quite striking, peeling off in thin strips showing an unusual green and gray mottling. The tree is usually found growing with several trunks originating from the lower four feet of the tree. This feature, along with the unusual bark traits, make this a highly desirable tree for planting in almost any landscape.

Caesalpinia lutea, Yellow Peacock flower, Barbados pride, dwarf poinciana, Barbados flower-fence

Click to see full-size image
Caesalpinia lutea
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Yellow Peacock flower, Barbados pride, dwarf poinciana, Barbados flower-fence
Origin: West Indies and tropical America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Evergreen shrub or small tree in frost free climates, a deciduous shrub in zone 9, and a returning perennial in zone 8. In the tropics it gets 15-20' tall and its ungainly, wide spreading branches can cover about the same width. In cultivation the peacock flower is usually 8-12' tall, growing that large even after freezing to the ground the previous winter. The stem, branches and petioles are armed with sharp spines and the leaves are fernlike and twice compound, with many small, oval leaflets. The flowers are borne in terminal clusters 8-10" tall throughout most of the year in tropical climates and in late summer and fall where frosts occur. The fruits, typical legumes, are flat, 3-4" long, and when ripe they split open noisily to expose the little brown beans. Very easy to grow in alkaline to acidic, well-drained soils. This is a fast growing, but short lived plant. It is moderately tolerant of salty conditions. Peaccock flower benefits from pruning, and can be shaped to tree form or shrubby bush form. The striking orange red flowers are an attention grabber! Use peacock flower as a specimen or in a mixed shrub border. It has an open, spreading habit and the branches sometimes get too long for their own good and break off. Still, a line of peacock flowers makes a showy fine-textured screen or informal hedge. You can cut peacock flower to the ground in late winter or early spring to get a bushier, more compact shrub.

Peacock flower lives up to its name with incredibly showy blossoms of orange and red. The striking flowers are an attention grabber! Evergreen shrub or small tree in frost free climates, a deciduous shrub in zone 9, and a returning perennial in zone 8. In the tropics it gets 15-20' tall and its ungainly, wide spreading branches can cover about the same width.

The stem, branches and petioles are armed with sharp spines and the leaves are fernlike and twice compound, with many small, oval leaflets. The flowers are bowl shaped, 2-3" across, with five crinkled, unequal red and orange petals, and ten prominent bright red stamens that extend way beyond the corolla. The flowers are borne in terminal clusters 8-10" tall throughout most of the year in tropical climates and in late summer and fall where frosts occur. There also are forms with yellow and forms with dark red flowers. The fruits, typical legumes, are flat, 3-4" long, and when ripe they split open noisily to expose the little brown beans. Very easy to grow in alkaline to acidic, well-drained soils. This is a fast growin plant. It is moderately tolerant of salty conditions. Peaccock flower benefits from pruning, and can be shaped to tree form or shrubby bush form. Use peacock flower as a specimen or in a mixed shrub border.
