The genus comprises herbaceous perennial plantsshrubs and rarely small trees growing 0.5–6 m tall, with bipinnate leaves. The flowers are produced in cylindrical or globose inflorescences and have numerous long slender stamens which give rise to the common names powder-puffpowder puff plant, and fairy duster. These plants flower all year round, but the best blooming is in spring and summer. They can be easily pruned. — Wikipedia
