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.

Like fire sparks.
Beautiful photos. I love these spiky little blooms, I wish they would grow in our area.
Beautiful little puffs!!
What a beauty! There is a pink powder puff which flowers more profusely.
That made me smile. They certainly look like powder puffs.
Wow! So beautiful! Never seen that flower before!

Beautiful! Love how the bright color pops against the green.
Very unique and beautiful flowers.
Loved this Fairy Duster when I saw them blooming in the Sonoran desert in Arizona...they are fascinating as they really do look like little bright red brushes!
Fascinating beautiful flower!
Sweet captures of the red powderpuff, Luna... and what an apt name for them (didn't know that)! I've seen them in Batangas, too.
Such pretty powder-puffs, so like some of our native flora.
that's a lovely and unique flower.
