Sean would love that one! He enjoys botany - especially the more fascinating plants!
Beautiful photo!I think this flower is named Powderpuff (in Portuguese is named Esponjinha). Powderpuff is from Brazil and can be a tree, a shrub or a dwarf shrub. All types have a sprawling growth habit. Best blooming is spring and summer. In good health, the foliage is a nice shiny green with compound evergreen leaves. Best is red although other colors can be seen. It's scientific name isCalliandra haematocephala - Red Powder Puff.I photographed that flower on my post. You can see themHERE
I think Calliandra haematocephala (also Calliandra inaequilatera) is correct. Looks like it's a very unusual member of the Calliandra genus in lacking bipinnate leaves. More pictures and info here and here
