Spotted this spiky red flower by the road side in Laguna. I didn't know its name until I searched on line. It's known as Red Powderpuff, Blood Red Tassel Flower and Fairy Duster. It belongs to the species of Calliandra, a genus of flowering plants, shrubs and small trees native to tropical and sub-tropical regions of southern Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas.
