Peacock Flowers

The botanical name is Caesalpinia Pulcherrima. This well-known tropical shrub has many other common names, such as Poinciana, the Red Bird of Paradise, and the Pride of Barbados. As Barbadian national flower, America is its source. Peacock flower plants can grow up to 3 meters in height.

This plant is very popular ornamental shrub in public and domestic gardens, as the bloom flowers have striking yellow orange vibrant. It has also been noted for its medicinal value; the juice of the leaves has been used by Amazon natives to help cure various fevers, and the seeds are thought to be an aid to chest problems and bad coughing.

One more thing, you can also use the bloom flowers as your earrings. Hahahaha…my husband told me that! It is remembering him to his childhood. And then I try it for myself. We acted like children again this morning, hahaha. Have you ever played like this?

Lovely flowers, thank you so much for sharing. Very sorry that you were not able to get into Today's Flowers but the link seems to be working now. I will go back and if I don't see your name there, I will add your entry if that's okay? Hopefully you will have no more problems but if anything crops up, please don't hesitate to ask.

Wow, so that's bird of paradise flower. My Papa has the bird of paradise flowers in his backyard but they're bigger than that. But the two colors and crepe petals are the same.
