Caesalpinia pulcherrima or peacock flower

Caesalpinia pulcherrima is a well-known plant in Mauritius. It is also known as the peacock flower because of its shape.

This ornamental plant does not require great care. Regular watering, pruning, it is a fast growing plant.

I have seen the orange+yellow here, but never the white+yellow one. The pictures of this particular variety found on the internet are amazing. I hope to get to see the white+yellow one for real someday.
