Red Bird of Paradise

Caesalpinia pulcherrima hides our house in the summer time. This desert shrub is a real beauty that we enjoy all summer. The flowers are bright red and yellow and cone shapped from the side and appears as a circle directly on.
Five individual petals of the flower form an arch with stamens on the lower side. This is the state flower of Barbados. It also was known to the medicine men of the Amazon. The leaves treated fever, the flowers sores and the seeds cough, difficulty breathing and chest pain.

But for Arizona Buddy it is the color of summer.
