I did some research on my Bonsai tree and found out may interesting things. The first is that the proper name is the Calliandra Emarginata or Calliandra Haematocephala. The common name is the Dwarf Power Puff tree. One of the reasons for this research was that my tree seemed to be growing out of control. The tree’s continued growth is great but it seemed to be really spreading out so that it looked like a T.
I found out that the time for trimming was during the spring and so I decided to trim the tree. It is amazing to see all of the new growth that happened and how much I was able to trim back. One of the things that I learned with trimming was that I should not trim off all of the new growth. I hope that I trimmed the tree properly so that I get to see some red flowers later this year.
