Calliandra twedii

Post  Diego Santana on Wed Dec 21, 2011 11:56 am

Hello friends I have posted some Brazilian native species, and I know many here in the forum do not know, but I've been showing these species to receive criticism, sujestoes, for only then can see a different design in the plant ...

This is a kind of accelerated growth, because it is a tropical plant, it grows very quickly and its control with pruning must be done many times about 3 months when pruning


Scientific Name: Calliandra Tweedie
Popular Name: Caliandra, sponge, mandararé, sponge-blood-red sponge
Family: Fabaceae
Division: Angiospermae
Origin: Brazil
Life Cycle: Perennial

Do this she left the toilet training vessel for a final ...

The flowers are very large and impossible to be reduced ..



The nebari this far above the rim of the pot which will be difficult to reduce since the plant contains a stem just below the roots of the first line.




I would like the opinions of friends of the forum on the conduct and design of this plant, although not a very well known outside of our country

OK
Pot color, the flowers are spectacular but I am not sure they are compatible with the blue pot.

Flower size, I think the flowers are out of scale to the size of the tree, a larger tree would be more in balance.

Trees with compound leaves such as this tree also look better in a larger scale.

The leaves are still decreasing, the flowers are very big yes. , Which color do you recommend for the pot?

I am not sure about pot color. Something to complement the flowers, maybe a shade of red or orange.

I am not a fan of glazed pots and don't normally use them.

I do think this tree will benefit from the glazed pot of the correct shade.

The blue color isn't bad, (complements the flowers on the color wheel), its the shape and delicacy of the pot that could be better.
Like Billy I'd like to see the tree about 75% - 100% bigger - both wider and taller.

Hard to see what branches you have but the skeleton would look like this - grow it out in a bigger pot for a few seasons.



And a virtual design.



Good luck.

That's a really nice looking tree! Beautiful trunk and base (though it does seem to sit a bit high in the pot), and those flowers are spectacular. I'm not really bothered by the size - the leaves, while compound, seem to have smallish segments and don't look too much out of scale. The flowers are really large but relatively simple in structure.

I think the tree could probably look even better if it was a little larger, though I think Rob's virtual might go a little too far.

Rob...
Sorry for the lack of photos of the plant without leaves here it goes ....
This photo is of a years back where the plant has not had much training work, only pruning and upward direction ...
The branches are still misguided but that will sync with the new training work that can only be done in the winter because the plant has grown rapidly in the other seasons

Coh
Thanks for the words friend, I like the plant and know that a little high and do not like it, I want everyone's views so you can better target this plant, I have to shoot again because we are in summer and the plant suffered another defoliation about 2 months ago, and here as the temperature reaches 35 ° the leaves are about 50% lower than in photos

Pot colour?

Post  jupitermininginc on Sat Dec 24, 2011 2:16 am

Deep purple I think. The impressionist palette of orange green and purple. So a deep dark purple to offset the brilliant orange flowers. Marvelous tree!

Pretty tree Diego. I think Rob's suggestion for growing this tree larger is a good one. Rob, my first thought, too, about the pot color, was that it complimented the flowers "via the color wheel". Your virtual pot is beautiful. Where did you find that pot?
Thanks,
Todd

Todd, the idea is otida Rob's friend, but I want to direct the plant to a style but tropical condition which presents the plant in the wild with canopy compact size and light .....

I like what you have done with the increased ramification of the branches, nice. This is looking better. I like the out sized flowers, they are startling, stunning. When not in bloom this tree would have a nice calm pastoral scene effect. In bloom it is an eye popping pleasure, a nice splash of color. How long do the flowers last? How long is the bloom season? Just one flush of flowers per year? Or are there several flushes of flowers?

Friends flowers do not support long, about 4 days at the most, and dawning three months in the spring
